Event Details

Microplastics are tiny fragments of plastics  – so small that they are incredibly hard to remove from the environment they pollute. Their presence is so widespread that they have found their way into our bodies – via seafood, and even via bottled water!

To know more about the extent of this problem, hear from giant clam researcher Dr Neo Mei Lin and Singapore’s leading coral reef expert Professor Chou Loke Ming. Their presentations will focus on the impact of microplastics on ocean and marine life. Also hear from the 2 winners of CDL E-Generation Challenge – a youth contest for ideas to combat plastic pollution in the ocean. The winners embark on a two-week diving expedition to join top coral and microplastics scientists to conduct research in the Coral Triangle in Raja Ampat, Indonesia.
