Garbage Guts

bigbookpic"Aria the Albatross and her seabird friends have a problem: They keep throwing up garbage. When she sets out on a long-distance flight across the Pacific Ocean to find out why, she meets other wildlife having trouble with trash. Monk Seal is trapped by a strapping band, Humpback Whale is hopelessly tangled in a ghost fishing net, and Sea Turtle is choking on a plastic bag he thought was a jellyfish.

Once-beautiful beaches, reefs and open oceans are littered by discarded fishing gear, disposable lighters, plastic bags and bottle caps, creating unimaginable hazards for the creatures that live there. As Aria learns, humans are both the cause - and the solution - to the ever-increasing problem of marine pollution."

Garbage Guts was inspired by Dr Heidi Auman's research on the effects of marine debris on Midway Atoll's Laysan albatross. Beautifully illustrated this book should be a staple in every school library around the world. Children are our future and we need them well armed.
