Another page of notes from the Naturalist Workshop in Provincetown, MA. This one is about marine debris. A little bit overwhelming to say the least! I haven’t been able to look at trash/debris the same way since we scoured the beach after the workshop looking for ocean debris. It comes in many shapes and forms : UGH! There’s a lot of it. Most of it is not obvious to your eye while standing on the beach looking. Once you start really looking over and under beach material you’re in for a real surprise!
The Whale Naturalist Workshop was co-hosted by the Provincetown Center for Coastal Studies, the Dolphin Fleet of Provincetown, and the WDC (Whale and Dolphin Conservation) group.
