An Albatross killed by ingesting plastic

Most of you are aware of the environmental damage caused by plastic, especially insofar as it affects our birds.  The HBC is concerned and asks members to keep this in mind and to contribute to the overall effort to reduce plastic in our daily lives.  April has been set aside as the month to cut plastic use, but we should actually make it our mission to do this all the time.  Birdlife Overberg has some projects underway and you may wish to peruse their web sites listed below with a view to participating in the good work they are doing.
