Learn about Problematic Microplastic, a presentation by Dr. Maia McGuire, University of Florida/IFAS Extension Service Sea Grant Program. Every time you wash your face or brush your teeth, you just may be adding microscopic bits of plastic into the aquatic environment. These tiny particles never biodegrade and are accidentally eaten by marine life, threatening their health. Plastic molecules are very resilient and could remain intact to threaten the environment for thousands of years! So, what should we do?
The good news is there are things we can do to reverse this trend and help battle the problem on our own fronts! During this special program, Dr. McGuire will discuss creative alternatives to help reduce these microplastics, helping wildlife and people alike!
