Unfortunately for the Albatross on the tiny atoll of Middway in the centre of the remote North Pacific Ocean, the mass consumption of plastic is having a tragic environmental impact on these majestic birds.
The image you see on our homepage was taken by Internationally acclaimed artist Chris Jordan. He and a group of his artist friends have been returning to Middway over the past 8 years to photograph and film thousands of young albatrosses that lay dead on the ground or suffering a slow painful death, all with plastic in their stomachs. The culmination of Chirs's work is the release of ALBATROSS, a film which is offered as a free public artwork. You can watch the whole film here. Also please consider donating here.
