Microplastics are plastic particles that are incredibly dangerous to our ocean. And tiny plastic pellets, also known as “nurdles,” can resemble fish eggs and are often ingested by seabirds, turtles, fish and other marine life. Nurdles have been found around many of the world’s coasts and in our ocean, damaging ecosystems along the way.
No place on Earth is immune from microplastic pollution, and that includes our ocean. We need advocates, like you, to help push for policies and innovations that can help keep our ocean—and our beloved sea animals—plastic free.
Join Ocean Conservancy and call on Congress to support the Plastic Pellet Free Waters Act and keep deadly nurdles and other microplastics out of our ocean.
