It's truly sad how the animal kingdom suffers from our lack of respect and responsibilities to maintain earth. Marine life and all species are at risk, forest are being torn to shreds causing global warming asphalt roads generate so much heat its causing global warming and human waist is polluting the earth and atmosphere causing global warming. If human don't do better there will not be a earth in the next 80 to a hundred years it's a proven fact for look at everything that's happening including wars .

Aldi‘s fishing nets should be tagged with serial numbers that could be led back to the owners of them whoever it is that’s dumping them they should have to have to retrieve them and not dump them in the oceans where the critters can get in tangled in them and they should be stiffly fined
