Divers free Octopus living in a plastic cup and give it a new home

While exploring the waters of Indonesia, Pall Sigurdsson encountered a sad scene: an Octopus who had taken refuge inside a plastic cup.

Pall Sigurdsson and his friends sought a solution to free the Octopus and offer it a new home. After several failed attempts, the Octopus chose a shell that fits perfectly to their natural needs.


The reticulated Octopus (Amphioctopus marginatus) found a new home and is in good condition, but it is unfortunately, the problem of pollution that lives on the seabed.

Not only small species like this mini-octopus are affected. Largest marine species can get trapped in nets or confuse plastic with food.

Each year, approximately 4.8 to 12.7 metric tons of plastic enter Earth’s oceans, endangering the lives of countless animals.
