So we found that about half of the seabirds globally have plastic in their gut, to some extent, varying amounts. And that amount is increasing by about 1 to 2 per cent a year, so that in 2050 we expect pretty much all seabirds to have been documented with plastic in their gut. The exposure to plastics is a really good predictor of how much plastic you’ll find in a bird and the implication of that is if we reduce the amount of plastic we put in the ocean through better waste management we’ll directly reduce the amount of impact on the birds.
