Thank you to Steve Abbondandolo from The Riverhead Foundation for Marine Research and Preservation for braving the storm to come and give an intriguing presentation on marine debris and our undersea environment!
We learned about the biggest problems our marine life face, from pollution to entanglement to damaging human interaction.
Marine debris is adversely affecting marine animals at an alarming rate. The BYO Bag LB campaign and The Riverhead Foundation for Marine Research and Preservation present “Our Undersea World: An Unnatural Danger”
The effects of plastic and other pollution on marine life will be discussed, as well as stories about specific animals that stranded due to pollution. A question and answer session will follow with experts from The Riverhead Foundation for Marine Research and Preservation.
Learn how to take a stand against this human-induced occurrence, and give these animals the best chance of survival. Help reduce the amount of marine debris entering the environment, before it can harm a marine animal, and create a safer environment for future generations of humans and marine animals alike.
