Effects of Plastic on Land

Currently, New Zealand is rated the 10th worst nation for creating urban waste.

If we look at our umbrella project Nature and Plastic it shows we have far more NZ Marine Nature and Plastic obs than for this project.

But what of the plastic waste that never reaches the ocean and is instead confined to land? Are plastics a danger to terrestrial animals too? Keep an eye out for plastic that is impacting on our terrestrial nature.

It's nest building time and some birds build nests using plastic. What are other things that terrestrial critters do with plastic?
