Field Trip: Hey Trash! Get off my Beach!
Humans have an affect on the marine environment in many ways, one particular form of human impact constitutes a major threat to marine life: the pollution by plastic debris. This trip students will head out to a local beach and collect all the ‘man-made’ objects that we find. We will look at what is found on beaches in Hong Kong, do a trash timeline activity and learn about ways in which we can reduce the amount of trash that ultimately ends up in the marine environment. We believe one person can make all the difference! Be an inspiration and show others how we can quit our plastic addiction.
