Featured Exhibit: The Great Pacific Garbage Patch

July 22 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 10:00am, repeating until October 27, 2019

THE GREAT PACIFIC GARBAGE PATCH IS THE LARGEST ACCUMULATION OF OCEAN PLASTIC AND HUMAN-MADE DEBRIS IN THE WORLD.

It covers a surface area twice the size of Texas, and contains up to an estimated 3.6 trillion pieces. But did you know it’s not actually a “patch”? Or how about the fact that garbage is accumulating in five distinct areas of our oceans? And did you know that your laundry is likely contributing to the problem?

Visit the Maritime Museum of BC to learn more about marine debris and plastic in our oceans, including why it is exists and how it continues to grow. You’ll also learn about the efforts from people around the world who are working to better the situation, and even how you can make small changes in your daily life that can contribute to big changes for our oceans.
