The Short-ailed Shearwater is a protected species so a permit would need to be 
held unless the local office of National Parks & Wildlife Service (DECCW) could 
co-ordinate.  Maybe the Australian Museum or a local university could 
co-ordinate.  It would be a very valuable exercise.

We found a dead Short-tailed Shearwater partly eaten on a north coast beach a 
couple of years ago and it was full of small pieces of plastic.  I randomly 
checked a second bird on another beach and it also contained plastic pieces.
