Science for Solutions

20/08/2021 at 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

We Strive for Solutions to Plastic Pollution and at the root of this is understanding!
The issue of Plastic Pollution is prevalent all around us yet we see little action being done. So we are working to change that!
We are conducting a pilot study looking to address the pre-production plastic pellet pollution in the Te Whanganui-a-Tara Wellington Harbour. The study will provide solid evidence alongside accredited recommendations that we can use to action change, while also providing a precedent for the rest of the nation to work towards.
If you are keen to be a part of the solution then Join us and Assist us in the sample analysis!
You don’t have to be a scientist just have a passion for what we are doing and an attention to detail.
The initial session is on Friday 20th August, 4-6pm. This will be an introduction into who we are and what the study is about, with the focus on our sample analysis. You will be given full training for the analysis and begin working on your sample! All equipment is provided.
If you are keen to help, and can commit to completing a full sample analysis (minimum of 4 hours/ 2 sessions) across our weekly sessions (throughout the end of August to September/October) then register to the event or message us on here!
Feel free to reach out with any further questions!
Look forward to sieving with you,
Algalita South Pacific
