Plastic pollution: Another threat for seabirds

Plastic ingestions affects around 94% of Cory’s shearwaters on the Catalan coast, according to new research. In the case of Yelkouan shearwaters and Balearic shearwaters, scientists show that 70% of studied birds were affected by plastic ingestion.Plastic pollution is known to be a threat for marine ecosystems around the world, but it has not been much studied yet. Jacob González Solís explains that "this is the first assessment of plastic ingestion in Mediterranean seabirds. The Mediterranean Sea has been recognized as a singularly sensitive ecosystem because its coast is very industrialized, shipping activity is intense and it contains high density floating plastic areas."
