Waterspirit is inviting you to join our program manager, Anne Price, as she monitors the beach at Snug Harbor in Highlands, NJ for Microplastics. Anne is volunteering for the Plastic Wave Project, a grassroots non-profit organization dedicated to educating the public about the harmful impacts plastic pollution has on our oceans and communities in hopes of creating healthy, plastic-free waterways. Plastic pollution continues to enter our coastal waters and the list of wild animals affected by plastic debris is growing to include not only sea turtles, whales and seabirds, but shellfish and planktonic fish. Participants will join Anne as she collects samples from the beach to be studied for microplastics. We will discuss what we are looking for, why we are monitoring, and what is done with the data.
