There is a lot of litter in the forests of our local park. This is not only unappealing to humans, but also a danger for wildlife in the area. Much of this litter is food/ food product containers which could be accidentally consumed by wildlife and can be very harmful to them. Many animals are injured or killed due to plastic waste each year as well. Animals in this park include white-tailed deer, box turtles, rabbits, and various snake and bird species.
