A BBC team has disturbing footage of the devastating impact plastic pollution is on seabirds in the Tasman Sea, which is between Australia and New Zealand. The film crew was on the remote Lord Howe Island for a new wildlife documentary called "Drowning in Plastic". They many birds that had because their stomachs were literally too full of plastic to able to eat any food. The birds to death because there was no room in their stomachs for food. The documentary team filmed marine biologists working on the island to try and the birds. The scientists hundreds of chicks and physically plastic from their stomachs to give them a chance of survival.

Marine biologist Jennifer Lavers what was happening to the birds. She said the birds were predators that will anything. She said: "When you put plastic in the ocean, it means they no ability to plastic from non-plastic, so they eat it." Adult birds the plastic to their chicks, oblivious to what they are feeding them. Professor Lavers that most of the plastic is "entirely preventable". She said: "We plastic clothes pegs and plastic tooth brushes. Those could easily swapped out for other materials - aluminium or wood. My own toothbrush is of bamboo." TV presenter Liz Bonnin said: "We saw...90 pieces of plastic out of one of the chicks."
