You're not going to like this

What you're looking at here is the remains of an Albatross chick from a tiny little island called the Midway Atoll in the North Pacific, where

more than 2000 miles from the nearest continent. The nesting babies are fed bellies-full of plastic by their parents, who soar out over the vast polluted ocean collecting what looks to them like food to bring back to their young. On this diet of human trash, every year tens of thousands of albatross chicks die on Midway from starvation, toxicity, and choking.
 Look at these pictures. Found here, original post here.
