‘BEACHOLOGIST’ GIVES MARINE WARNING FRI 13th
Professor Allan Williams, the renowned ‘beachologist’, gives a lecture on ‘Marine Litter’, at Sustainable Wales’s Green Room 5, James St., Porthcawl CF36 3BG, 8pm, Friday, October 13.
The talk is the first in an ambitious series of lectures, tiltled ‘Counterpoint’, organised to mark the charity’s twentieth anniversary.
All types of beach litter will be discussed, including the degradation of plastic, ultimately to such fine particles it now enters the human bloodstream.
Margaret Minhinnick for the charity said today: “Professor Williams’s talk is timely, as it has recently been revealed that Coca Cola produced an astonishing 110 BILLION plastic bottles in 2016, many of which will enter the sea.
“Eight million tonnes of plastic enter our oceans every year. As Prince Charles says this week, ‘decisive action’ must be taken to protect marine wildlife."
The ‘Counterpoint’ series of discussions reflect the environmental, social and cultural concerns of NGO, Sustainable Wales.
Entrance £4. Everyone welcome.
