We're swimming in ocean plastic pollution — sometimes literally. Right now, California is leading the way toward a solution. We need to make and use less single-use plastic, and increase what’s actually recycled. Join us and support a policy that stems the tide at its source.
When Aquarium scientist Sal Jorgensen and his colleagues placed camera tags on sharks in South Africa, they discovered something unexpected about white sharks and kelp forests. In our video, learn about these scientists' research — and see the ocean from a shark's perspective!
We know that microplastic particles from our water bottles, clothing and take-out containers are at the surface of the ocean, but we've just discovered that there's even more in the deep sea. Read our latest research results to learn who's been eating these deep-sea plastic particles and what that means for their health — and the ocean's!
