A Year-End Shell-ebration!
November 2016—We celebrated our ten-year Makana-versary! This lovely Laysan albatross lady was part of a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service breeding program in Hawai'i. Sadly, she damaged her left wing at four months of age, making her unable to fly despite rehabilitation efforts. Makana—"gift" in Hawaiian—has been with us ever since, as an ambassador to her species and to the plastic-impacted North Pacific Gyre ecosystem.
