CANCELED – Deadly Deception: The Plight of Birds and Plastic Pollution

March 24 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

- $5

Update: In response to the evolving COVID-19 outbreak, our public programs have been canceled through March 31.

Life in the wild is a constant hunt for sustenance, but what may seem like a nourishing morsel to a bird may actually be a deadly piece of plastic. Jaco ten Hove and Chris Brewer will describe the innumerable hazards of discarded plastic to the survival of birds including absorption of toxic pollutants, entanglement from discarded fishing gear and other plastic, and consumption of plastic particles. As we learn more about how plastic refuse endangers our oceans and its critters, we can be inspired to adjust our behavior to stop this problem. Jaco and Chris will offer action steps we can each take to end plastics pollution.
