Why Are Albatrosses Endangered?

    There are three (3) main reasons why albatrosses are endangered.

The first reason why albatrosses are endangered is because they are being killed by the fish hooks.

The second reason why albatrosses are endangered is because they get rabies from stray cats and wild rats.
     Definition of rabies: The infection that is mainly spread from wild animals.

The saddest reason of all is that most adult albatrosses feed their chicks plastic. They mistake the plastic for colorful fish. As they keep eating the plastic they can't digest it, so they eventually die.  

The albatrosses greatest enemies are humans because they pollute the oceans by not recycling.
SO REMEMBER TO REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE!!!!!

This is a picture that shows how much plastic is found inside a baby albatross's stomach (half a pound). The death of this harmless albatross was caused because of us humans do not recycle our trash and litter.
