Fishing (hooks) and Albatrosses - Manly Beach

Another dead Shy Albatross found at the beach. This time it was an obvious victim of 'fishing-by-kill'. The fishing hook was lodged in its eye and the nylon string entangled especially the young bird's legs.
Create more Marine Reserves, eradicate the ineffective and wasteful fishing industry and ban ' recreational' wasting of biodiversity.
