Plastic in the world’s oceans has become a topic of worldwide concern, especially since the coverage of the issue by Sir David Attenborough in the recent BBC series, ‘Blue Planet II’ and by Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall and Anita Rani in the BBC series, ‘War on Plastic’.
As part of the series of events to accompany the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition in Beverley, Matt Barnes, North East manager of the Marine Conservation Society, will be giving a talk called ‘Stop the Plastic Tide’ on Thursday, 25 July at 6.15pm in the Treasure House in Beverley.
Matt will share his love for local coastlines and his passion for stopping the plastic tide; from volunteers on the ground and education in schools, he will explore what is being done to tackle the global crisis in single-use plastics.
The talk will be a chance to hear what everybody can do to give the world’s oceans the protection they deserve.
