Skull Shark Marine floating garbage collector

77% of the turtles have eaten plastic bags by mistake, drove the turtles through the shape of a shark, and used wind energy and special structures to collect floating garbage without harming small creatures. The concept simulates the process of eating, the product builds its own flesh by swallowing garbage, and finally forms a local "new species". The device recovered through GPS is displayed in the exhibition hall, helping people to clearly understand the threat of human activities, and at the same time recognize the closeness of humans and marine resources, and ultimately enhance people's awareness of marine protection.
