A local resident took these photos of a Darter entangled with fishing hook at Balmoral earlier this month.

Greg Bell contacted WIRES who knew of the bird’s plight. The good news is that it appeared to be eating normally, giving the bird a chance to survive until it could be caught and assisted.

But most are not so lucky.

Please help us protect our coast from the devastating effect that litter, particularly fishing line and hooks, poses to our native birds and marine life.
