This week at the international Marine Protected Areas conference in la Serena Chile, Impac4, our Chilean representative, Mark Minneboo, presented the 20 minute condensed version Plastic Ocean, and participated in a panel with photographer Chris Jordan.

The Impac4 event is held every 2 years and gathers all the worlds scientists involved in the study and protection of our oceans. With representatives from all around the globe, this conference is now more important than ever because our oceans are facing many threats, like illegal fishing, industrial contamination, climate change and of course plastic pollution.

We are very happy that the organization recognized the importance of addressing the issue of marine plastic pollution and the importance of creating awareness and policies to avoid plastic getting into our oceans.
