Plastic, heralded by many as a miracle material, is now choking fish, accumulating in their tissues, and slowly seeping down food chains. Every minute, the equivalent of a truck load of plastic is dumped into our ocean.
Can we reverse the damage already done by dumping plastics? Are we able to alter our plastic consumption enough to preserve biodiversity? Or is it too late to save our seas? Join a panel of experts for this talk as they explore if it really is too late to save our oceans.
This event is presented in partnership with the Royal Society of Biology and the Biochemical Society for Biology Week 2019. Biology Week 2019 is from 5 – 13 October and showcases the important and amazing world of the biosciences, getting everyone from children to professional biologists involved in fun and interesting life science activities.
