You’re invited to join via Zoom on Wednesday, May 11 at 7 PM ET for A Global Look at Plastic In the Ocean, a webinar with Dr. Kara Lavender Law, Research Professor of Oceanography at Sea Education Association in Woods Hole, Massachusetts. The theme is – A Global Look at Plastic in the Ocean with Dr. Kara Lavender Law
Since the 2000’s, when ocean plastic pollution first became an issue of environmental concern, scientists have documented microplastics in every ocean in the world, as well as in freshwater, soils, the air, and in the human body. The identification of microplastics seemingly everywhere we look has prompted alarm and further study, as major gaps remain in understanding the magnitude and severity of the problem.
This talk will discuss the plastics problem from an environmental perspective, examining its impact on wildlife and human health, and asking what can be done to reduce and manage the plastics under production, and those we have with us today.
Dr. Lavender Law will be introduced by Beyond Plastics’ Policy Director, Dr. Megan Wolff – don’t miss it!
