The poor old Laysan Albatross certainly drew the short straw when Albatross feeding territories were handed out, copping the "Great Pacific Garbage Patch" (North Pacific Gyre) as a significant part of their feeding territories. And people think that the junk that goes into the seas just disappears. It wont be long before we are able to harvest the various oceanic gyres as plastic feed-stocks.
