Midway Island - Plastic Disaster

I came across a video on Facebook today and 
had to post it on my blog immediately. 
This video is about an island in the ocean called 
Midway Atoll or Midway Island.

This island is 2.4 square miles and is roughly 
equidistant between North America and Asia.

Nobody lives on this island, only birds.

The photographs taken show how the
 plastic debris in our oceans create a devastating 
effect on the birds who live on this island.  

It brought tears to my eyes and gave me 
greater conviction to continue creating art
that communicates the severity of the
environmental crisis that plagues our world.

Please watch.
