Research

Many scientists research our
island shores our ocean surrounds
marine vegetation, sea creatures.

On little islands further south
scientists research again taking
and freezing samples of all these
also seal poo samples from beaches.

Samples once frozen are later thawed
back at research headquarters, slides
made, scrutinised under microscopes,
findings recorded, analysed.

One seal poo sample once thawed
out, dissected, contained a sample
of today’s plastic, a USB flash
drive. Cleaned up it showed photos
of an unknown beach and islands.
Where had that seal been ?

So a news clip screened on
the evening news, showing the
photos with a request for the
owner to contact the scientists.

Where has this seal been ?
