Plastic in Their Tummies

Inspiration. It’s what we all need, right? So head on over to Midway Journey on Facebook. A small group of people traveled to Midway Atoll to take still pictures and video of the birds of Midway Atoll and show how the presence of plastic trash was affecting the parents and chicks. Amazing pictures of birds, people, cameras, you name it, by Kris Krug and others.

You can also check out the Midway Journey website. I think the photos are easier to access on Facebook.

In addition, a student on the voyage, Emily, has her own blog.

How is this restoration?

The participants in Midway Journey are using their artistic skills to help us deal with the environmental hazard of plastic in our oceans.

They came to the conclusion that all the chicks on Midway have plastic in their stomachs.
