Nature photographer Caroline Power recently shared footage of one such island, or “trash line”, floating off the coast of Honduras. Power explains that the trash line is mostly made up of plastic and styrofoam. She adds that this 2-mile long line is the result of tides and winds collecting debris over time, and that it is a serious threat to the habitats of a variety of species, including baby sea turtles.
