The toxic, invasive species is captured by Mother Ocean's hired mercenaries in an attempt to eradicate her waters of man-made pollution.

[Mylar]batoidei
[Mylar]batoideiAnother first sighting of a new #PlasticSpecies along the coast of Southern California this evening at feeding hour. A close relative to #StyroShark, almost nothing is known of this 8 family suborder Mylarbatoidei. This ray does not appear to have a tail or modified dermal denticle [barbed stinger], but this demersal should be approached and observed with extreme caution due to possible skin reactions from what appears to be a radioactive chemical dermal layer. The creature moves with semi-predictable undulation and appears to consume oxygen at a fairly rapid rate due to hunting techniques along the sea floor. I will continue my investigative research of this new #PlasticSpecies.

Pygmy Killer Mylar Whale
Pygmy Killer Mylar Whale Los Angeles, CA- An early morning sighting of a new #PlasticSpecies off the coast of Southern California. From initial observations it appears this Pygmy Killer Mylar Whale has adopted a whole new evolutionary strategy. Swimming in brilliant glimmers of light, the entire surface of the whale is covered in shimmering #mylar nonetheless toxic to surrounding water. Nothing can be assumed yet as to its feeding, breeding or migratory behaviors. However, it may be correctly presumed that the Pygmy Killer Mylar Whale has no natural predators and might be an invasive species. Continued research and observation will shed interesting light on the Pygmy Killer Mylar Whale. Could this newly discovered plastic species be saying something as to our world pollution epidemic?
Strawanemone
StrawanemoneStawanemone. One of the new highly adaptive plastic species I've discovered off the coast of beautiful Hermosa Beach CA. Colorful, bizarre and above all- nearly indestructible, this new invasive species proves to be a formidable foe.

Mop Jelly
Mop JellyMoving with devilish undulation, mop jelly drifts beneath the crisscrossing rip currents beneath the Hermosa Beach Pier feeding on discarded plastic debris. With neither sea turtles nor Mola mola to keep this dirty mop species at bay, the increasing numbers of these invasive Cnidarians pose a threat to local surfers and beachgoers with its toxic sting.

Plastihydrophiina
PlastihydrophiinaIn only my second sighting of Plastihydrophiinae since November 19, 2013 in Hermosa Beach, California, I was taken by surprise this morning while scouring the sandbar in Redondo Beach south of the pier for #PlasticSpecies. I am not certain if this is the same individual I encountered in Hermosa Beach as that particular "Plasti" was timid. This individual was camouflaged in the sand near the edge of a Sand Dollar bed. Suddenly, as I swept the surface of the sandbar, a sand cloud exploded in front of me. I must have disturbed the creature from slumber or discovered its predatory blind. The Plasti shot away across my body faster than I could turn and shoot. I did, however, manage to capture this frame of the Plasti the moment before it zipped past me. What a rush! The hunt to discover new #PlasticSpecies continues! 
Rise Above Plastics
Rise Above PlasticsThe mountain is always further than it looks. Is always taller than it looks. And it's always harder than it looks. But the summit of this mountain must be conquered.

end of the roadplastic pollution is driving in the fastrak lane towards oceanic environmental collapse along with a multitude of other contributors; air pollution, nitrogen runoff, overfishing, seismic airgun blasting, offshore oil drilling, toxic dumping…the list goes on and on.we are on the tipping point...but the question remains, which direction will you push?#brentalex
