British diver Rich Horner posted footage of his plastic-infested swim off Bali’s Manta Point on Saturday.

“The ocean currents brought us in a lovely gift of a slick of jellyfish, plankton, leaves, branches, fronds, sticks, etc…. Oh, and some plastic,” Horner wrote on Facebook. “Some plastic bags, plastic bottles, plastic cups, plastic sheets, plastic buckets, plastic sachets, plastic straws, plastic baskets, plastic bags, more plastic bags, plastic, plastic, so much plastic!”

Manta Point is a cleaning and feeding station for Manta rays just off the shores of Nusa Penida in Indonesia. It attracts the creatures all year round, but the video shows a single ray in the background.

“Surprise, surprise, there weren’t many mantas there at the cleaning station today,” Horner observed. “They mostly decided not to bother.”

While the plastic trash was carried away by currents the next day, Horner noted the problem doesn’t simply go away.
