‘Garbage island’ will take 10 days to clear

Plastic pollution and garbage

PRACHUAP KHIRI KHAN: The huge floating garbage island in the Gulf of Thailand is largely plastic waste and a threat to marine life, according to authorities who say it will take 10 days to clear.

The trash slick was located again by an aerial survey on Friday, 10 kilometres away from its position on Thursday.

Koh Talu is a popular shallow-water dive site in Prachuap Khiri Khan province.
