Jenessa joins me on the podcast to discuss a pilot study that she is crowdfunding to learn how plastic pollution (microplastics) affects different marine mammals. this research will be crucial in our journey to stop plastic pollution from entering the Ocean.
You can help fund Jenessa's pilot project here: https://experiment.com/projects/which-marine-mammal-eats-the-mostmicroplasticss=discover&fbclid=IwAR2LyFZfXijeUs0G5zgzwFcoSXxk8L01gFD8V_CMQ0xu3Mk0mGr0am2Zz1U
Any donation counts, especially as there is a bonus to the project for the number of people that donate.
