I am searching for locations in either North or South America where animals might be utilising rubbish on beaches regularly or reliably?  At the moment specifically I'm looking to try and find Hermit Crabs using bottles or tops instead of shells - does anyone know of a beach where they see this?

But I am interested in any cool wildlife adaptive behaviour, preferably coastal. Any help much appreciated!
