Plastic trash inside our albatrosses: “fun” on Midway Atoll National Wildlife Refuge! »
[can’t see the video? watch it on vegansaurus.com]
Remember those shocking pictures of the dead baby albatrosses with the bellies full of plastic from last year? Well the problem hasn’t magically gone away (I hate when that happens!). Midway Atoll National Wildlife Refuge, where those pictures were taken, released a video last month that’s pretty depressing. John Klavitter, who manages the refuge, says the whole plastic-in-the-belly thing, they see that every day. The first dead albatross he walks up to is full of bottle caps and other plastic crap.
Oy, I’m such a dick with my water bottles! OK, I’m going to start actually using my Sigg. You all heard it, let it be done.
