Plastics are everywhere – on our beaches, in the water, large pieces, microplastics — you name it. There is so much plastic waste that it is having a serious negative effect on wildlife both in the ocean and on its shores. Birds are very susceptible to plastic problems through entanglement or ingestion. In this 30 minute fascinating podcast, BirdNote takes a look at the issues, what we can do to protect birds and other wildlife from the perils of plastic, and help #bringbirdsback.
