LEARN about the detrimental effects of plastic on seabirds at a free film screening in Currambine.

Sea Shepherd Marine Debris Campaign Australia, Plastic Free July and North Earth Carers, with support from the City of Joondalup, are hosting an intimate screening of Albatross by Chris Jordan.

The film is described as a “powerful visual journey into the heart of a gut-wrenching environmental tragedy”.

It features Midway Island in the remote North Pacific Ocean where tens of thousands of Laysan albatross chicks lie dead on the ground with their bodies filled with plastic.

Photographer Jordan returned to Midway over many years with his team, documenting the cycles of life and death and capturing stunning and intimate portraits of these seabirds.

The event will run at the Currambine Community Centre on July 6 from 6pm to 9pm, with donations going to Sea Shepherd Australia.

Following the screening will be a question and answer forum.
