Hawaii’s Sea of Trash

GMA 400L - Senior Seminar Research Lab

It is evident that Hawaii is dependent on their oceanic environment. They use the ocean to feed themselves as well as import goods. Many of the species in Hawaii’s waters have been affected by marine plastic debris that is derived from the newly recognized Athropocene Era, also known as the era of human impact. With efforts being made to get rid of plastic in the ocean, Hawaii and other countries have already begun the process of change and improvement to the earth today.
