Unseen Pollutants — Microplastic in Global Aquatic Environments

July 9, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Microplastic is a pervasive pollutant found in every habitat in the world. Learn about global microplastic distribution, where in may come from, how it is effecting our marine species, some of its potential environmental impacts and most importantly, what we can do about it.

Schoodic Institute invites the public to join Abby Barrows for this free presentation on July 9, 2019 at 7:00 PM in Moore Auditorium on the Institute campus.

Abby Barrows is a Marine Research Scientist. She has directed global microplastic pollution research since 2013, developing the most diverse and largest known dataset available to date. She has published four papers on the subject and obtained her Master’s degree from College of the Atlantic in 2018. When not studying plastics, she can be found on her oyster farm, Long Cove Sea Farm in Deer Isle, Maine.
