I would research this a little more, these kinds of claims have been going on since the mid 80's. The Wildlife Diseases Research Center researched this back in the late 80's and disputed the claims saying that dehydration from lead based items was the leading cause and that human activity (vehicular trauma) at Midway Atoll represented additive mortality for pre-fledgling albatrosses.

I'm discussed by the crap in our waters as much as anyone but, with the history of embelishing, exploting and outright fabrications to further a agenda, one has to wonder about the credibility of the story.

Think in terms of the Linx, spotted owl and desert tortise, all of which have been proven to be based on a agenda ( with a side order of fabrication ) and not facts
