Conservation in New Brunswick: What Is the Macro-Level Problem With Microplastic Pollution?

In July 2019, I had the opportunity to participate in a conservation mission with the Québec-Labrador Foundation (QLF) in Tabusintac, New Brunswick. We visited various nature reserves recording bird species, as I mentioned in a previous article called Bird Population Sustainability: How Can You Enjoy the Practice of Birding?. In addition, we joined several community-based efforts to clean up beach areas. Seeing trash littered along Canada’s coasts is a heartbreaking sight, which I later wrote about in an article for the foundation called The Macro-Level Problem of Microplastic Pollution. My article defines the term microplastic according to the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Agency (NOAA) in 2008, and proceeds to describe the environmental hazard’s issues and consequences. Participating in this mission and viewing the adverse effects of our society’s waste disposal habits was an eye-opening experience. Here are some pictures that I took of the beautiful region, where I had the chance to explore and to build memories that I will cherish forever.
