Plastic. It has become an invasive problem in the world's oceans. In this informative book, biologist Ana Pêgo gives this invasive new species in our oceans a name, Plasticus maritimus.
Inspired by Ana's experiences growing up on a beach increasingly filled with plastic, and backed by research, this book will inform you about the problems plastic poses to our oceans, how plastic is made, examine the current "solutions" to contamination and call for us all to change our habits and become part of the solution to this growing threat.
Invasive, deeply destructive, and almost indestructible, Plasticus maritimus is a species that should go extinct!
