Mother Bird Feeding Its Baby A Cigarette Butt, A Proof How Humans Destroy the Planet

bird, cigarette butt, pollution

Humanity should be responsible towards nature, a simple reminder to everyone. We as humans should be the one to uplift and guard our mother nature, and not the one who destroys it. In our present situation, we have to stop polluting our planet, be it a small plastic straw or a cigarette butts, let's be mindful on how we manage and dispose our waste.

In a photograph captured by Karen Mason of National Audubon Society, a mother bird at a beach in Florida was feeding her baby chick a cigarette butt.

Yes, you read it right.

She shared another picture again. This time, the baby chick was seen enjoying the cigarette butt in its mouth.

“This skimmer chick was offered a cigarette butt by its parent. It’s time we cleaned up our beaches and stopped treating them like a giant ashtray,” Karen wrote.

Meanwhile, a few days ago, a turtle carcass was found with plastic bags coming out from its rectum. Environmentalists believed that the turtle was pooping them out.

A stingray was also found dead with its stomach filled with a book, camera, bottle and a pack of cigarettes recently.

By reading the different incidents above, we can still learn a few things from it. Just take a look at all these cases happening around the world.

We should be mindful of our action, specially the way we treat the environment. Animals do not know how to differentiate between a waste and a food, but you do. We as human do know what is wrong and right more than them, you should remember that. This is the time we put the battle against pollution before it is too late for us.
