Nicholas Patrie's curator insight, December 17, 2014 8:23 PM

pretty gruesome and eye opening picture of what is going on in the oceans we live in. This plastic killed the bird that thought it was food but this goes well beyond the birds and fish in the present. The future will be a scary place because this will kill plenty of the fish and birds and cause catastrophic problems in our ecosystem. Humans will have a harder time eating food in the future if we don't clean some of this stuff up.
