Healing Oceans: Tackling Plastic Pollution in Marine Ecosystems
October 22 at 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
with Charles Rolsky
Microplastics have pervasive effects both in marine and freshwater ecosystems. This interactive workshop includes demonstrations on ocean studies and how microplastics travel up the food chain in such an efficient manner. In the second half of the program, attendees will extract microplastics from actual ocean samples. Discussions will include how to avoid certain plastics and how essential some plastics are.
