The Albatross Exhibitionist was constructed in Msambweni on Kenya’s South Coast. This majestic, plasticized Albatross highlights the dangers posed to seabirds by discarded plastics found in our oceans and on our beaches.
Tragically, many seabirds are prone to mistaking plastics for food, and often suffer a slow and agonizing death after consuming everything from PET bottle caps, plastic bags and sandal parts to lighters, biro pens and razors.
