So Pretty, that Plastic Apocalypse

plastic in bird stomach

These are bits of plastic discovered in the stomach of an albatross fledgling, which was found on a Hawaiian atoll. This image is from the cover of the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B (Biological), a special issue which contains a symposium on the effects of plastics on our world.
