Lovin Malta Article
Everyone knows the problem attributed to plastics and microplastics . Yet, we did not know the extent of the problem within the Maltese coastal waters . That is where Project IMPACT comes into play ️️!
The project commenced in January 2021. The Maltese Islands were divided into several zones and using transects we collected a number of samples and replicates to ensure that we have a good representation of our coastal waters. We spent hours in the lab to extract, characterise and analyse for microplastics . By October we shared our preliminary findings to a number of stakeholders.
Lovin Malta ️has provided a snapshot of some of our findings! As we finalise Project IMPACT, the outcome and results from this project will pave the way for more collaboration and more awareness about this pollutant ️.
