The short (3-min) video summaries the goals of the SF Bay Microplastics Project, a regional program aimed to better understanding the distribution of microplastic in San Francisco Bay and adjacent National Marine Sanctuaries, the pathways by which these contaminants enter the Bay, and possible means of controlling their release. 5 Gyres and San Francisco Estuary Institute are collaboratively carrying out the project.

With funding from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation and Patagonia, the project team is still collecting and analyzing data in the field. They look forward to sharing their project results next year.
