The remote Inuit community, living in the Arctic hamlet of Tuktoyaktuk, are concerned about how microplastic pollution in the ocean could harm their health and threaten their lives. Microplastics are tiny plastic particles found throughout the ocean and are eaten by fish, birds and other marine animals. This is very troubling because we don't know exactly how this plastic affects the health and behaviour of the these animals. Microplastic pollution is a worry to the Inuit in Tuktoyaktuk as rely on fish and marine mammals to feed themselves, and as a vital part of their traditional culture. Rhiannon Moore, a researcher in the Ocean Wise Pollution team, will shares her experience researching ocean microplastics in the Arctic, and showedhow we can stay optimistic while facing this emerging global conservation issue.
