Join the Ucluelet Aquarium’s ongoing microplastic and marine debris initiative! We conduct monthly microplastic surveys at local beaches to collect data on microplastic distribution and composition.
Everyone is welcome to help out with this important study looking at microplastics on our local beaches. Spend a few hours helping out and leave with a better understanding of microplastics and their potential impact on the environment. Interested volunteers can email Britt in advance at Britt@uclueletaquarium.org .
Rain or shine so dress for the weather!
10am – 12pm
Meet at the Willowbrae Rd parking lot @ 10:00am, South Florencia Beach
The Ucluelet Aquarium is a unique catch and release facility which provides an up close and personal encounter with a diversity of fish and invertebrates from the local waters of Barkley and Clayoquot Sounds. Their mission is to raise awareness about local marine biodiversity and promote respect for the ocean environment.
For full details of the opportunities to be involved and to discuss the possibilities, email the volunteer coordinator.
