ABC Wed Letter A for awareness.
http://www.haunuiwaka.org/ Haunui sails with the mission of revitalising waka culture and knowledge within the Pacific; protecting the environment, promoting awareness of the oceans, pollution and climate change.
I was interested in a model of a whale tail where plastics were used to show how it affects our ocean life. Howitt calls the most common plastic found the “filthy five”: bottle caps, plastic bags, plastic food wrappers, polystyrene and foam and the insidious “plastics of unknown origin”: tiny, sun-bleached pieces of plastic that are brittle and break into hundreds of tinier pieces, wreaking havoc on the marine ecosystem.
