"On Midway Atoll, a remote cluster of islands more than 2000 miles from the nearest continent, the detritus of our mass consumption surfaces in an astonishing place: inside the stomachs of thousands of dead baby albatrosses. The nesting chicks are fed lethal quantities of plastic by their parents, who mistake the floating trash for food as they forage over the vast polluted Pacific Ocean."

Thanks for highlighting the threat to seabirds of discarded plastic.
I assume many of you have seen these pictures from the March tsunami that hit Midway and some of the positive human efforts to salvage things where possible.
