This is sadly the result of dumping non-degradable plastic into the ocean. Thankfully this Turtle was fine following the removal of the straw from its nostril, swimming away able to breath much freer.
At least this story had a happy ending.
An alternative to plastic straws are paper/cardboard ones. They break down after use, unlike plastic ones.
Another is to simply forego the use of straws when not needed.

This stupendous photo captures Humpback Whales in the act of Bubble Net Feeding. The technique has the whales use bubbles to corral a school of small fish, such as salmon or krill, before they all simultaneously rise to the surface with their mouths open.
The truly remarkable hing about this behaviour is that it is NOT instinctive, not all Humpback Whales can do it. It is in fact a learned behaviour! This shows the degree of intelligence present within these ocean titans!

There are lessons in life to learn from if we allow ourselves to accept and acknowledge them.
