Did you know that microplastics (small plastic particles) are floating around in the ocean and posing a physical and toxicological threat to marine animals? An increasingly large amount of microplastic pieces are found in our oceans and consumed by marine animals who mistake them for food.
The Wetlands Institute is partnering with Clean Ocean Action’s new Microplastics Study to help locate and quantify microplastics present in both sediment and water samples taken from 7 Mile Island beaches. Visit the following links for More information on microplastics:
