This gut-wrenching collection of photos from the Midway Atoll documents dead albatross chicks who have been fed plastic trash by their parents. Every day, their parents fly out over the polluted Pacific and bring back colorful plastic, which they think is food. Every year, tens of thousands of albatross die this way on tiny Midway Atoll. Midway is over 2000 miles away from the nearest continent. None of these photos have been manipulated in any way. Protect the ocean, don’t throw trash overboard, don’t let your trash blow into the ocean. Join the Surfrider Foundation if you are not already a member.
