Plastics that have been littered or thrown out will eventually float into the ocean. Black-footed Albatross are ocean surface feeders and depend on finding food on the oceans surface for themselves. The birds often mistake floating plastic debris as food and will ingest high quantities of plastic bottle caps, plastic fragments, discarded cigarette lighters, and plastic toys. The plastic will still remain within the decayed ribcage even after the birds death.
Set an example to others and encourage them to help. Every little bit helps. Pollution in the water will eventually lead back to us.
Rachelle showed me these videos and I think we all need to be more aware of what actually goes on in our world. Please watch the videos.
