Kiama Pelican dies eating 17 plastic bags from our sea

I didn’t know it was Pelicans too… it’s such a beautiful bird we are killing. I only knew about about the dead Albatross chicks eating all the plastics we chuck in the sea, on Midway Atoll in The Pacific. I read about them in The Guardian 5 years ago and started my project PLASTIC SEA, http://www.hannahtofts.com/plastic-sea-the-book after years of beach cleans here on the West Coast of Scotland, then collecting and making with plastics washed up on our local beaches, as my creative response, as an Artist to share and show, inspire, make aware and shock.
