The short (3-min) video summarizes the goals of the SF Bay Microplastics Project, which aims to better understanding the distribution of microplastic in San Francisco Bay and adjacent National Marine Sanctuaries, the pathways by which these contaminants enter the Bay, and possible means of controlling their release. 5 Gyres and San Francisco Estuary Institute are collaboratively carrying out the project.

With funding from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, the RMP, Patagonia, and EBMUD, the project team is still collecting samples and analyzing data using cutting edge methods. They look forward to sharing their project results next year. Track the latest developments on Instagram and Twitter: #SFBayMicroplastics
