International science writer, artist, and wildlife rehabilitator Erica Cirino is on a mission to find out the truths about plastic pollution and its impact on the planet, wildlife, and people. Erica will share her experiences at sea and on land documenting some of the most polluted places on the planet, including the Pacific Garbage Patch in the eastern Pacific Ocean and Kamilo Beach on Big Island in Hawaii, also known as “Plastic Beach” where there is now more “plastic sand” than natural sand on its shore.
