Caption

Fishing hook injury to the wing of a giant petrel (Macronectes sp.) found at its nesting site. Such injuries happen as seabirds dive for fish at sea. Swallowing such hooks is another common and often fatal problem, endangering rare birds. The hooks are from the long fishing lines used by commercial fishing fleets. Photographed on Bird Island, South Georgia, southern Atlantic Ocean.
