Please SHARE this post to increase awareness. Once again a plastic ring injures a bird. Cut every solid plastic ring you come across. ‘Rescue’ plastic you see on roads and river foreshores and beaches before it kills a bird. And think about ‘adopting’ a special piece of river or beach or wetland that you enjoy visiting, gather a few friends or workmates and help to keep it clean. Thank you to Michael from QEII for the photo and assistance in rescuing this bird. The bird was entangled for only 24 hrs or so and they managed to rescue it and remove the soft plastic ring that was preventing it from feeding. A simple plastic ring can kill a bird through slow starvation.
