With over 10 million tonnes of plastic waste entering our oceans each year, plastic pollution is a huge global problem affecting our marine environment. As larger pieces of plastic break down, they form microplastics, and it is this type of plastic that can cause major issues for marine species and ecosystems. What is the current state of marine microplastics in South Australia? Marine researchers from the University of Adelaide will share with us the most up-to-date research on marine plastic pollution, including current trends and solutions.
This talk is made possible with the support of Experiencing Marine Sanctuaries, The University of Adelaide Fab Five Team, and Green Adelaide.
