Polar Ocean: the dead end of plastic debris
Tuesday 19 March: 6:00pm - 7:30pm

An estimated 80% of all the litter in our oceans is plastic,with a significant concentration of plastics debris in both polar oceans. The impact of this debris on the sensitive polar ecosystem could be profound. Join us for this facinating and thought-provoking talk by Pelagic Marine Ecologist Dr Clara Manno from BAS as she explores the current research and existing situation in the polar regions.
