Florida Microplastic Awareness Project Workshop
Our oceans are gravely impacted by plastic pollution. Persisting in the environment forever, microplastics are one of the most harmful forms of ocean pollution. In an effort to increase awareness of the presence and effects of microplastics, the Florida Microplastic Awareness Project (FMAP) is engaging volunteers throughout the state in sampling and analyzing local waters for plastic. Come learn about the facts of plastic pollution and the impact on the environment at Tampa Bay Watch. This workshop includes an informative lecture and microplastic sampling demonstration. Participants will hopefully leave feeling inspired to be a part of the solution and get involved.
