Yellow Rope on the Beach: a webinar for students grades 6-12
May 13 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Fragments of yellow rope are washing ashore on beaches in Washington and Oregon. Where did these three-strand braided yellow polypropylene rope pieces come from, and how can this type of marine debris be reduced?
Students, join this webinar to find out how yellow rope is used, ways the pieces escape into the marine environment, and the steps oyster growers are taking to find a solution for this problem. There will be time at the end of the presentations to ask questions of the panelists.
