Plastic waste

Protect the ocean from plastic trash!

Environment advocate Professor Augustine Mungkaje of the University of PNG revealed that many of the man-made rubbish that are thrown into the sea can still be there after hundreds of years.

He explained that all sea creatures, from the largest to the microscopic organisms, are, at one point or another, swallowing the seawater soup instilled with toxic chemicals from plastic decomposition.

Preventing more plastics from getting into the sea is another huge challenge.
