Join the Cary Institute for a talk on Plastic Pollution in Freshwaters, From Rivers to Oceans given by Loyola University aquatic ecologist Timothy Hoellein.

About the talk:

Did you know that most of the plastic polluting our oceans was swept downstream by rivers? Loyola University aquatic ecologist Timothy Hoellein will discuss the ecology of plastic garbage – including its production, disposal, and accumulation in the environment.

Learn about the biological impacts of plastic pollution in freshwaters, how it degrades ecosystems, and tools being developed to prevent the problem.
