“While scientists and politicians may argue about climate change and its impact on our world ocean, the world is waking up to the devastating reality of the oceanic plastic plague,” says Bernard, the co-founder and Executive Director of Hawai’i Wildlife Fund. “After several decades of local awareness-raising we are at a tipping point worldwide where plastic pollution of the ocean is widely recognized as one of the greatest threats of our time to the ocean ecosystem and even human health.”
Bernard’s talk will focus on ways individuals help turn the tide on the plastic plague and why there’s hope for the future.
“We are excited to have this opportunity to share Hannah Bernard’s extensive knowledge about plastic pollution with the community,” says Amy Hodges, Programs Manager at Maui Nui Marine Resource Council. “She’ll be sharing the latest findings about plastic pollution and offering commonsense ideas for ways to slow down and perhaps even stop the ‘plastic plague’ that is threatening our ocean and all marine wildlife.”
The meeting will also include updates on Maui Nui Marine Resource Council’s programs, including results from its ocean water quality monitoring program alTong the shores of south and west Maui and its program to improve ocean water quality at Ma’alaea Bay.
