    Producer/Host: Natalie Springuel
    Studio Engineer: Amy Browne

    Issue: Maine coastal and ocean issues

    Program Topic: Marine Debris and Microplastic Pollution in our Ocean

    Key Discussion Points:

    What is marine debris? Comparing marine debris such as trash bags, plastic bottles, fishing gear, and other visible marine debris, with microplastics, such as microbeads, plastic fibers and other microscopic pollution that ends up in our waters. How are they related and different?

    What are the sources and consequences of marine debris and microplastic pollution?

    How can people become involved in helping mitigate ocean pollution through their purchasing and lifestyle decisions, by becoming involved in coastal clean ups, and other ways.
