Volunteers from the Australian Seabird Rescue South Coast Branch have successfully nursed Pip the Little Penguin back to health.
Little Pip needed some nursing after she swallowed some nylon netting.
"Three days ago Pip regurgitated what looks like nylon netting along with a few pieces of soft and hard plastic," a Seabird Rescue South Coast Branch spokesperson said.
"The good news is Pip is going to be okay now that she has cleared her stomach of the plastic and is gaining lots of weight."
She is one of the lucky few.
Seabirds eat the plastic rubbish that pollutes our oceans.
"Soft plastics like balloons and bags are favoured by many pelagic species including marine turtles as they resemble natural food sources like jellyfish and squid," the spokesperson said.
"Unfortunately the world's oceans are swimming in plastic and it's hard to imagine how this is going to change in the near future given the plastic habits of humans.
"Our marine wildlife is relying on us to help them so please do your best to reduce your plastic use."
We can all help marine creatures like Pip survive.
"You can start with a few really easy changes like using fabric shopping bags, use a keep cup for your coffee and a water bottle and always say no to plastic straws in drinks and use a reusable face mask," the spokesperson said.
Australian Seabird Rescue is a self funded group who relies on donations to survive.
