This story uses humor and shocking images to convey the dangers plastic pollution imposes on shorebird species.
Humans are not the only ones impacted by plastic pollution
Plastic has various effects on shorebirds with the predominant impacts being degradation of health due to ingestion and entanglement. This is a global issue that is increasing in severity as single use plastic consumption rises. Through the anthropomorphism of these bird species, I aim to show how man-made products can have impacts on shorebirds that are disastrous. All of the photos used in this story, including the arms, were taken by myself.
