This work references Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s” Rime of the Ancient Mariner”, in which the albatross was killed, causing perceived bad luck for the rest of the voyage. We need to acknowledge that at least 3% of albatross deaths are caused by plastic pollution ingestion, and reflect on our role in the environment and its destruction.
