Plastics are everywhere—on land, in the sea, in the air, and in our bodies. What are the effects of this ubiquitous substance on our health and the health of animals and ecosystems?

Join Ngā Ara Whetū, the Centre for Climate, Biodiversity and Society, and Te Aka Mātauranga Matepukupuku, the Centre for Cancer Research, at the Members’ Lounge, Old Government House for a thought-provoking panel conversation this Earth Day. Our researcher panellists, who join us from a wide range of disciplines, are;

Dr Samantha Ladewig (Marine Science)
Assoc. Professor Anne Gaskett (Biological Sciences)
Assoc. Professor George Laking (Medical Oncology, Manutaki Haumanu Māori of Te Aka)
Dr Manuel Vallee (Sociology)

Moderated by Dr Maria Armoudian (Co-Executive Director of Ngā Ara Whetū). With thanks also to the Ocean Boundary Hub.
