Week 0: Introduction
Hi, my name is Derek and I will be researching how Macro- and Microplastics have impacted aquatic life. I am going to be working as an Discovery Guide Educator at the New York Aquarium in Brooklyn, New York. As part of this position, I will educate visitors to the aquarium on how the ocean has been impacted by pollution. In addition, I will be able to talk through ways in which everyone can take a part in reducing the amount of pollution flowing into the ocean. If you’re interested in learning more about my project, you can see my full proposal here. You can learn more about my on-site position here.
