Marine Experts Talks – Plastic Pollution in our Oceans

The Brighton Dolphin Project, a new initiative launched by the World Cetacean Alliance, aims to improve awareness about the importance of local marine ecosystems and species in the Brighton area. The project aims to achieve this through educational experiences and outreach events. This summer, we will be hosting a series of Marine Experts Talks, where people from different organisations will come to the Discovery Centre to discuss their pioneering work in marine conservation.

Our third series of talks aims to address the implications that plastic pollution is having on our oceans. Globally, plastic pollution has reached every part of the world’s oceans, and around 40% of UK beach litter can be directly sourced to the public. Recent initiatives such as charging for single-use plastic bags, removal of microbeads from personal care products, are signs that there is a demand for safeguarding the future of our seas.

Kate Whitton, from the Marine Conservation Society, will be attending to present a talk about plastic pollution in our seas, and how you can get involved with events such as Great British Beach Clean.
