Trashed Nests, Poisoned Bellies and Entangled Wings:
A Bird's Eye View of Plastic Pollution

Erica Cirino, International Science Writer and Artist
Friday, November 10, 7:30PM
Peconic Lane Community Center, 1170 Peconic Lane, Peconic NY (map)

Like modern humans, today's birds come in contact with plastic on a near-daily basis: They see it, they build with it, they eat it, they feed it to their young. This is especially true of birds living in the plastic-strewn marine environment, which has resulted in more than 90 percent of the world’s seabirds having consumed plastic at some point in their lives. All this plastic has come at an enormous cost to birds' survival on Earth. In this presentation you’ll learn more about the threats plastic poses to avian wildlife and what you can do to help.
