Unlike other species, octopuses don’t have a hard shell or sharp spines to protect themselves, so camouflage is their best bet for avoiding hungry predators. They use this ability to hide in reefs, rocks or sand.
One thing octopuses can’t hide from? Ocean plastics.
On World Octopus Day, help keep our ocean trash-free by telling Congress to support legislation that cuts down on ocean plastics.
The REDUCE Act will put a fee on new single-use plastics which will encourage companies to use more recycled content and reduce the amount of new plastics created.
Take action on plastic pollution today: Tell Congress to support the REDUCE Act and make it less desirable to create new plastics.
