Horrible pictures, made by photographer Chris Jordan, of dead albatross youngsters made this month at the Midway Atoll [Wikipedia], a tiny stretch of sand and coral near the middle of the North Pacific. Their bellies are full of plastic caused by feeding. On this diet of human trash, every year tens of thousands of albatross chicks die on Midway from starvation, toxicity, and choking.
