Recognize This Holder? Learn The Damage It Can Do To Animals


These plastic can holders kill thousands of animals each year. Thrown away by careless people, these can strangle many wildlife and bird species.

The plastic gets caught around necks, abdomens, legs and wings and as they are plastic do not biodegrade. Many young animals are small enough to get caught in them and as they grow the plastic cuts into their skin leading to infections and a very slow, painful death. If you find any of these please cut them open before safely disposing of them to prevent any animals suffering a horrific death.

Please don’t drop litter – a lot of animals get injured by getting caught up inside pack plastic holders. Animals are naturally inquisitive creatures, but once they go into a small space, their spines prevent them from reversing out, so they need humans to cut them free. In some cases infection can set in and cause the animal severe suffering – in many cases, wildlife carers are left with little choice but to have the animal put to sleep.
