On this week’s episode of The Sustainability Circle, we have Rhiannon Moore joining us on the conversation on microplastics in the ocean. Rhiannon is a masters student at SFU and a researcher with Oceanwise. She has one question in mind — how are microplastics affecting the food web for belugas in the Arctic. We talk about her thesis, the way of life in the Arctic, Indigenous perspectives, climate change and the interconnectivity of different systems.
