Screening of ‘A Plastic Ocean’ movie followed by a Q&A session.

In the centre of the Pacific Ocean gyre researchers found more plastic than plankton. A Plastic Ocean documents the newest science, proving how plastics, once they enter the oceans, break up into small particulates that enter the food chain where they attract toxins like a magnet. These toxins are stored in seafood’s fatty tissues, and eventually consumed by us.

Come along to the screening of “A Plastic Ocean” film followed by Q&As with Maria Jesus Valdes (Department of Marine Science, University of Otago).

Time: Film start time 5.30pm (1hr 42 minutes), followed by a short Q&A session about the topic.

Thanks to the sponsorship of the Akaroa Marine Protection Society, each movie goer will receive a free Akaroa jute bag – Spot prizes throughout the night.
