The project "Plastic Busters MPAs", promoted by the Department of Physical, Earth and Environmental Sciences of the University of Siena in collaboration with a consortium of international partners, aims to analyze the consequences of micro and macro-plastics on marine biodiversity and endangered species, such as some species of cetaceans, turtles and seabirds. The results of the carried out monitoring activities will provide an exhaustive analysis of the impact of marine litter in the Marine Protected Areas involved in the project.
In July 2019 will begin the monitoring activities of plastics in the area of the Pelagos!
