In a change to our originally planned movie, we are now showing the documentary A Plastic Tide.
Over eight million tonnes of plastic enters the ocean each year, killing sea life. Now new evidence says it’s entering our food chain with unknown health effects.
Pre-movie presentation by Dr Mark Hartl, Associate Professor of Marine Biology, Director, Centre of Marine Biodiversity & Biotechnology. Microplastic contamination is now ubiquitous in the (marine) environment. Efforts to put mitigating government policy measures in place require a monitoring programme to establish baseline concentrations in order to gauge impact and effectiveness.
