Learn about the famous "plastic whale" that was found on the island of Sotra in 2017 with more than 30 plastic bags and other plastic items in its stomach. This Cuvier's beaked whale was found stranded in shallow local waters and had to be put down - a tragic reminder about plastic pollution in the oceans.
