Summary
Plastic garbage knows no borders. Dumped into the sea, it floats on ocean currents and is distributed around the globe, threatening the livelihoods of sea birds and animals who both eat and are trapped by plastic waste. Told from the perspective of a Northern Fulmar, a sea bird who makes its home in the northeast Atlantic and across the northern hemisphere, Plastic Sea: A Bird's-eye View uses the most up-to-date scientific information to offer insight into a growing environmental crisis with global implications. If we continue to dump as much plastic as we do today, there will be more plastic than fish in the sea by 2050. Fortunately, there are actions we can take as individuals and as a global community to reduce plastic waste in our oceans. Plastic Sea is an invitation to give sea birds, animals, and the Earth itself a chance to thrive again
