South Korea | Plastic debris choking waters off Dadohaehaesang NP

GEOMUN ISLAND, South Jeolla - About 10 meters (33 feet) below the surface of the sea near this remote island off Korea’s southern coast, a coral reef of vibrant hues came into sight. A school of fish floated by.

But it didn’t take long for a reporter from the JoongAng Ilbo diving last October to spy something much less picturesque: plastic waste - a whole lot of it.
