Wildlife killed by garbage floating in oceanOctober 31, 2009
Here is an extemely sad and graphic story about a large body of plastic garbage that is reportedly floating off the coast of California. Birds and other wildlife are apparently mistaking some of the trash for food and ingesting it. Photographer, Chris Jordan, found a way to share the heartbreaking situation with others by photographing the carcasses of the dead birds he incountered on a small Pacific island. Here is the link to the story. Here is the link to more of Jordan’s disturbing photos. Here is a link to a story on the trash by the Wall Street Journal. It is encouraging, however, to see how one person with a camera can make an impact if they so choose.
