Marine Litter: Looking Forward to a New World

Marine Litter: Looking Forward to a New World

Plastic accounts for more than 80 percent of waste found in the open sea and on beaches, threatening the balance of ecosystems. The sea turtle, in particular, has a wide geographic distribution, uses different habitats, and unfortunately ingests marine litter. Therefore, it is a good indicator for assessing the impact of marine litter. Consisting of a selection of photographic material collected over four years and a comic strip, the exhibition highlights the impact of plastic accumulation in our seas through the study of the loggerhead turtle Caretta caretta and the dangers it faces on a daily basis.
