Balloons on the Beach

Balloons on the Beach

May 1, 2019  |  Ear to the Sand

More balloons than ever are being found on Cumberland Island and other beaches in Georgia.

Dolphins, whales, turtles, and many other marine species, as well as terrestrial animals, are hurt or killed by balloons every day. With the balloon blocking its digestive tract, the animal is unable to consume any nutrients. It then dies a slow and agonizing death from starvation. The animals can also become entangled in the balloons and ribbons, making the animal unable to move or eat.

Sea turtles are particularly at risk because they naturally prey on jellies and often mistake balloons for their favorite food source.

Even balloons marketed as biodegradable or “eco-friendly” can still take years to disintegrate, meaning they’re not any better for the environment than standard balloons.

Some counties and states have enacted laws regarding the release of balloons. Please add your voice to those who are asking the Camden County Commissioners to BAN BALLOON RELEASES to protect Cumberland Island and other beaches. Please sign this petition.
