Microplastics a macro problem

Sunday, 22 July 2018 - 11:30am to 12:00pm

The Port Phillip EcoCentre's Clean Bay Blueprint research has found that 828 million littered items reach Port Phillip Bay each year from the surface of our two urban rivers, the Yarra and the Maribyrnong. 74% of this is microplastics. Today we interview our very own Fam Charko, lead author of this research, and hear about the method, the findings, and the impacts.


Sunday 11:30am to 12:00pm
Information about marine and coastal environments. News and interviews with marine scientists, campaigners and conservation workers. Presented by volunteer broadcasters who are passionate about marine environments, both local and across the world.
