A video about the fact that there's more plastic than plankton in the oceans
Algalita Marine Research Foundation / MacDonald Productions 2004
Our Synthetic Sea traces the groundbreaking research conducted by the Algalita Marine Research Foundation (AMRF) regarding the exponential buildup of “non-biodegradable” plastic debris in the world’s ocean. The program documents AMRF research and sampling from Hawaii, the North Central Pacific Gyre, and the California Coastline.
Our Synthetic Sea employs scientific papers and interviews with concerned scientists to reveal why toxic, estrogenic plastic debris is a serious, chronic threat to marine food webs.
