Resource Overview

Balloons and sky lanterns may look pretty while they are going up, but when they come down as litter they pose a real danger to marine life, particularly sea birds who can become entangled in the string, and turtles who may ingest balloons mistaking them for food. Learn  with your class why the 'Don’t Let Go' campaign is essential to help reduce their impact in your area.

Includes some fantastic ideas for an alternative launch. Thank you to the Marine Conservation Society for allowing us to share this resource.
