and turtles die through entanglement and ingestion of litter, and

land based sources.
This year as many as 60,000 Canadians will work together from
September 19-27 to remove nearly 200 garbage trucks worth of trash
(more than 135,000 kilograms) from shorelines and waterways during
the 16th annual TD Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup.
