    “One of the world’s most remote places, an uninhabited coral atoll, is also one of its most polluted.

    Henderson Island, a tiny landmass in the eastern South Pacific, has been found by marine scientists to have the highest density of anthropogenic debris recorded anywhere in the world, with 99.8% of the pollution plastic.

    The nearly 18 tonnes of plastic piling up on an island that is otherwise mostly untouched by humans have been pointed to as evidence of the catastrophic, “grotesque” extent of marine plastic pollution.”

    Isnt this shocking? Im sure this isnt the only place on earth this is happening.

    Really isn’t unfortunately, the Midway Islands have a huge problem too, such a shame for islands with such historic significance.
