Midway

Message from the Gyre

 

These photographs of albatross chicks were made just a few weeks ago on Midway Atoll, a tiny stretch of sand and coral near the middle of the North Pacific. The nesting babies are fed bellies-full of plastic by their parents, who soar out over the vast polluted ocean collecting what looks to them like food to bring back to their young. On this diet of human trash, every year tens of thousands of albatross chicks die on Midway from starvation, toxicity, and choking.

 

To document this phenomenon as faithfully as possible, not a single piece of plastic in any of these photographs was moved, placed, manipulated, arranged, or altered in any way. These images depict the actual stomach contents of baby birds in one of the world's most remote marine sanctuaries, more than 2000 miles from the nearest continent.

i call bullshit, in the ammount of fucking time it would take for those birds to decompose another bird would have ate that shit in its bells and/or wind would have blown it all over the place.

That's not shennans.

 

There's a huge drift of trash floating around in the pacific ocean that is considered to be about the size of Texas. Fucking literally. It's even shaped kind of like Texas. Ohh the irony. It moves here and there around the Pacific depending on the wind and tides... which mostly just circulate, which is why all of that bullshit has just collected together in a giant raft. The only way it will ever deplete or disappear is really if we clean it up. Plastic doesn't bio-degrade. In some spots it's supposed to be meters thick and has developed it's own ecosystems.

 

Mostly it sits southish of Hawaii.

I mean if your species cant tell the difference between plastic garbage and fish good luck and all,

but I'm guessing you'll all be extinct a long before humans stop making garbage.

I mean look at that shit, according to evolution some creatures just aren't meant to stick around.

What you just said is true, except the part about this not being shenanigans.

Those pics are shenanigans.

Therefore so is the story behind them.
