Join us July 21st for our Discovery Lab on marine debris on our Facebook page! Our guest speaker is Sam Athey, a Ph.D. candidate in Earth Sciences at the University of Toronto, where she is investigating the sources and release pathways of anthropogenic microfibers, micro-plastics, and associated chemical contaminants to the environment. Sam is also evaluating measures for mitigating microfiber and contaminant release to aquatic environments.


Sam and our Education Team will be online from 6-7pm to answer any questions you have in the comments section. See you then!
