Albatross

This photograph shows 276 pieces of plastic found in the stomach of a 90 day old albatross chick from Midway Island, North Pacific Ocean in 2012.

Statistics show that plastics at sea have no boundaries.

100% of marine turtles, 59% whales, 36% of seals, and 40% of seabirds have eaten marine plastics.
