Marine Science and Conservation Speaker
Lots of “stuff” ends up on beaches. Some of it is natural – the things that we delight in finding washed up on the shore.
The rest is likely to be accidental or deliberate trash and pollution – or maybe the result of it.
Can you tell the difference?
Our Forum assembles local and national authorities on trash and its impacts in the marine environment.
If you are concerned about worrying marine realities – think Pacific garbage patch, ghost nets, balloon jellyfish – then come along and hear more about what is happening here, interstate and overseas.
