cynthia vanderlip, manager of the state of hawaii's kure atoll wildlife sanctuary, cut open the dead body of a fledgling laysan albatross (nicknamed "shed bird") to find more than half a pound of plastic in its stomach.
concentrated below are all the items retrieved from inside the bird: plastic lighters, bottle caps, and other plastics that are carelessly tossed often wind up floating on the ocean surface, where they are occasionally consumed by foraging seabirds and other marine creatures.

^Odd, I came across this photo this morning:

I had been hoping that the odd collection of plastic bits had somehow collected there at high tide...but I thought not. :(

^Yes it is. :( Though I must say it was the first - and next to the fall of the Wall most influencial - global event experienced in my 80' s childhood (our region was also mediumly strong affected by fallout, we kids were not to play outside when it rained, the sandbox was taboo, we didn't eat any fruits/veggies from our garden etc. My colleague, who lived at the time in Minsk, Belarus, told me about how it was there, besides some squads washing the streets with a special foam - maybe twice - not much happened, although radiation levels were quite well known, everybody listened to Western radio, or let others fluent in English/German translate them the reports. For example people still ate their self-grown things, went for mushrooms to the woods etc.)
