In 2019 Sea-Changers supported CSGRT with their St Ives Bay Microplastic Survey. The team trawled for microplastic from the St Ives Bay area. Cornwall Seal Group Research Trust are founder members of the Cornwall Marine Microplastics Research (CMMR) Team who conduct scientific analysis of all the collected samples. Results are reported on. In addition, real life, locally trawled microplastic samples are shown to residents and visitors to raise awareness and educate them at events and presentations across St Ives Bay and beyond motivating everyone to reduce their own reliance on plastics in our aim to reduce emissions of microplastics.
