Tony Amos is the founder and director of the Animal Rehabilitation Keep at the University of Texas Marine Science Institute in Port Aransas. Tony is a researcher and oceanographer widely recognized for his efforts to educate the public about the problems increasing human population and encroaching development pose for wildlife in our coastal area. In his work, he has witnessed the negative effects of plastic marine debris, including plastic bags, on many marine animals.
When asked why he prefers reusable bags versus single-use plastic bags, he answers:
“You have to get rid of a little bit of convenience if you want to preserve the environment.” We commend Mr. Amos for his hard work and hope that other people will follow his great example.
