Litter & Wildlife

Record #:
Cape Hatteras National Seashore naturalist Clay Gifford discusses the effect of litter on wildlife. Many people who litter along the beaches or in natural areas often do not realize the harm they are creating for wildlife. Among the items Gifford considers a menace to wildlife are monofilament fishing line, plastic six-pack bottle holders, paper from Polaroid films, and cans. Birds can be ensnared, strangled, or poisoned by these items.
