Helping the Flesh-footed Shearwater
BackgroundThe population of the Flesh-footed Shearwater breeding on Lord Howe Island has declined by about 50% in the past 30+ years. This species faces many threats, but the effects of plastic pollution in our oceans is immense. In one study, over 75% of Flesh-footed Shearwater chicks on Lord Howe were found to have injested large amounts of plastic. The plastic was fed to them by their parents, who mistook the bits of garbage for food.
SupportResearch Fellow Jennifer Lavers is studying Flesh-footed Shearwaters and their relationship with marine pollution, including plastic garbage. 25% of the retail price of each Birdorable product with one of the designs listed on the right will be donated to help her continue her work.
