Pacific plastic effect on Albatrosses - Documentary Trailer

We've all heard, and some have sailed through, the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Here is one documentary coming out that outlines the effect on nesting albatrosses on Midway Island.

Powerful.

This was posted a while ago but it should be seen by everybody who hasn't watched it before. Thanks for re-posting.

I must have missed it. Thanks for the comment, but you're right, maybe others missed it also.

Very nice find. I hadn't seen it before.

I didn't realize there would be such an impact in that way - just goes to show that all are affected by these events.
