Did you know that plastics account for 80% of all ocean pollution ? This is one of the most pressing challenges facing the ocean. Plastics pose a huge threat to the ocean ecosystem because they do not biodegrade. Instead, they continue to break into smaller and smaller pieces, which litter the ocean and its beaches.Organized by From the Bow Seat , this year’s contest asks you to explore the theme ” Our Oceans, Our Plastic “, allowing you to explore and interpret the connections among the ocean, plastic pollution, society, and you.
