On April 26, the Port sponsored a free lecture on the impact of plastic debris on the lives of albatrosses and other seabirds.
Carol Keiper, the presenter, studied the growing problem of seabirds found starving to death because their stomachs are full of un-digestible plastics.
The lecture was intended as a "call to action" to inspire people
participate in the Creek to Bay Cleanup and the Wetland Avengers
both taking place on April 29.
