Microplastics: Plastic Pollution in Drinking Water & In Terrestrial & Aquatic Systems

Plastic products are convenient, cheap and ubiquitous in our daily lives. Unfortunately, they have become a major source of pollution on land and in aquatic systems. This program, led by Goucher biology professor Dr. Cynthia Kicklighter, will explore how plastic ends up in natural areas and the various ways in which it impacts organisms. Participants will also learn about the work conducted by Goucher students on the prevalence of plastic microfibers in campus ponds and its ingestion by aquatic species. Participants will have the opportunity to isolate and view plastic microfibers in water samples.
