Sustainability Brown Bag- Our Plastic Oceans: The Oceans' Apex Predators and How Plastic Pollution Affects Them

Join us for an exciting sustainability brownbag presentation all about SHARKS! Angelica Gero developed a passion for sharks at a very young age and her first internship in South Africa brought her dreams to life when she was exposed to sharks in their natural habitat. Soon after she directed that passion to raising awareness among shark watching tourists on the environmental threats that these misunderstood creatures face every single day- especially plastics. In this presentation, Angelica will discuss the important role sharks play in an ocean ecosystem, threats on sharks, the role of plastic pollution, and the small steps we can take to make a difference. Angelica has a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology and has several years of experience working with various ocean conservation groups.
