August 1, 2007

In my dispatch on July 20, I mentioned a bird that visited my boat.  It was a dark footed albatross.

As I row, I can look closely at the ocean.  I see litter like soda bottles, loose fishing nets and grey fuel jugs.  These are all made of plastic.  There is much more pollution that I can’t see. 

People from all over the world say we must protect the ocean.  But that is not enough.

Because of litter, birds like the one I saw the other day are dying.  They eat the plastic because they think it is food and they die.

This is sad.  We must do a better job of saving our oceans.
