Get Involved in Plastic Debris Research! International Pellet Watch

Dear Students and Teachers,
I have just attended a lecture by Dr. Hideshige Takada from Tokyo, Japan. He studies persistent organic pollutants using beached pre-production plastic pellets or "nurdles" collected from the beaches by volunteers for "International Pellet Watch." You can contribute by going to your local beach and collecting at least 50 "nurdles"(plastic pellets) to send to him for analysis! All the information you need in order to participate is located on the International Pellet Watch Website;
