MEETING − Plastic, plastic everywhere – the impact of plastic on our oceans – Speaker: Peter Ryan.
July 12 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pmFree
Professor Peter Ryan, Director of the FitzPatrick Institute of African Ornithology, conducted his MSc on the impacts of plastic on seabirds in the 1980s, before the study of micro plastics was in vogue. He has monitored the amounts of plastic in seabirds and around the South Africa coast ever since, resulting in one of the longest time series of marine litter data in the world. In this talk he’ll report how much plastic there is in the sea, its impacts on marine organisms, and identify its sources so we can best decide how to tackle the problem.
