Strandings provide opportunities to collect data on interactions between megafauna and marine litter which help address the limited information available on the impacts of litter in developing countries, such as the Philippines. However, the perception that single‐individual strandings yield minimal data restricts the scope of publication, resulting in the limited dissemination of potentially valuable information. Here we present a case of plastic ingestion by a Bryde’s whale in the Philippines and discuss the importance of consistent long‐term collection of strandings data and the value of publishing these results.
