Plastics: Pelagic Peril Exhibition- Extended

Saturday, April 20, 2019

10:00 a.m.4:00 p.m.

This event repeats every week on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday between 1/7/2019 and 5/4/2019.

NOW EXTENDED!

This exhibition focuses on the serious problem of ocean trash that affects the health of people, marine life, and local economies. It also features poignant images of marine life by local artists. The exhibition enumerates specific actions that ordinary people can take to protect and conserve the world’s oceans. 

More than 12 million volunteers over three decades with Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup have collected over 220 million pounds of trash, having picked up everything imaginable along the world’s shorelines: cigarette butts, food wrappers, abandoned fishing gear, kitchen appliances, and even automobiles. Trash in the water and on the shore can kill marine animals, injure swimmers and beachgoers, and ensnare boat propellers.
