Out of the plastic trap: saving the Mediterranean from plastic pollution

A new report from the WWF finds record levels of pollution from microplastics in the Mediterranean Sea are now higher than those in the oceanic ‘garbage patches’ and are threatening marine species, fisheries activities and human health in the region. Launched to coincide with World Oceans Day, June 8 2018, the report presents a detailed roadmap of the urgent action needed to stop plastic waste from reaching the sea.
