Please hold on to your balloon tightly.
They say that each year, millions of balloons are released into the air and when they finally land, they can wind up in trees, river systems and many other habitats. Sadly, latex balloon material has shown up in the digestive systems of turtles, dolphins and many other marine animals.
So, dear little kid with a balloon, please don't let go of your balloon.
And to a sweet boyfriend planning a beautiful balloon-release surprise for his girl...
