Fact of the week

Tube-nosed seabirds consume large amounts of plastic.

 

First of all, what are tube-nosed seabirds? They are types of birds such as, albatrosses, shearwaters and petrels.

A new study has shown that tube-nosed seabirds swallow large amounts of plastic compared to other birds because plastic debris coated with algae has a high level of DMS and so smells like food to these birds.

DMS is dimethyl sulphide and is a chemical that is released from the cells of marine alga when krill eat it. 

This shows how deadly plastic is to all life on our incredible planet. These animals may not know what they have eaten until it is too late. Plastic pollution must stop now.
As we are all staying at home, think about how you can change your habits to become more environmentally friendly.

LETTERS

One of my biggest achievements is receiving a letter from Sir David Attenborough after writing to him. When I wrote to him I explained how much of an inspiration he is and I also included a speech which described my passions for the environment. 

I have also received a letter from Jacinda Arden relating to a campaign I participated in for the New Zealand dolphins.

Everything about the ocean and nature interest me. Marine life and all life on Earth completely amazes me and yet there are thousands of species yet to be discovered.

Every creature is a miracle of evolution and it is devastating to think that one generation can destroy this.

I want to share my love for the ocean with you and let you all know how you can protect our truly unbelievable planet Earth.
