On March 15, a dead whale washed ashore on the beaches of Compostela Valley. An examination on the carcass revealed the cause of death were “starvation and dehydration” after it was found that it ingested 40 kilograms of plastic. It was tagged as one of the worst cases of poisoning ever seen. Earlier this month, Greenpeace Philippines released underwater photos taken from the Verde Island Passage in Batangas during an underwater exploration the organization conducted onboard the Rainbow Warrior on March 7 and 8.
