Ban Balloon Releases in North Devon

This petition had 559 supporters

The Marine Conservation Society, through their beach clean surveys, have found the number of balloons and parts of balloons on UK beaches has tripled in the last 10 years.

What goes up, must come down, and this is a very real threat to our wildlife. Balloons in the sea resemble a jelly fish and if eaten, they can block the animals gut causing it to starve. There is also the risk of entanglement in the balloon’s ribbon or string.  

At every balloon release there are hundreds of people and hundreds of balloons.
