Join as Dr. Sherri Mason of SUNY Fredonia presents her lecture, “Perils of Plastics.”

Microplastics are small particles that are added to personal care items to give them an abrasive property. They can affect fish, birds and other wildlife who may ingest the plastics, causing internal blockage, dehydration and death in these species. Microplastics can also transport other pollutants.

“The world is an interconnected system. This is not just about aquatic animals; it is a significant concern to human health as well.” — Dr. Sherri Mason
