Event description

Description

Every minute, the equivalent of a truck load of plastic is dumped into our ocean. Plastic, heralded by many as a miracle material, is now choking fish, accumulating in their tissues, and slowly seeping down food chains. 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?

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.
