Maia McGuire, PhD UF/IFAS Extension Florida Sea Grant Agent

We often think of marine debris as a big problem, as in the debris that washes onto our beaches and floats out in the great Pacific garbage patch. But it is actually a “small” problem as well, as in the microplastics that are being found in increasing numbers in our fresh and saltwater bodies. Each time you wash your face or brush your teeth or wash your fleece jacket, you just may be adding microscopic bits of plastic into the aquatic environment. These tiny particles have many known and un-known environmental impacts. Join UF/IFAS Extension Florida Sea Grant Agent Dr. Maia McGuire hear about Microplastics in our Environment! We will discuss the issue of microplastics, current research in Tampa Bay and around Florida, and share some helpful information on what YOU can do to HELP!  Program intended for High School and Adult Audience.
