Unite the states and territories for a national ban on the release of balloons and the use of helium to inflate balloons.
Why is this important?
Released balloons end up as litter - somewhere - and threaten wildlife. Balloons are 32 times more likely to kill a sea bird than pieces of hard plastic when ingested. Wildlife such a turtles and platypus die from starvation, entanglement or choking. Balloons are known to travel hundreds of kilometres over land and ocean. Without helium, balloons would not be released.
