Monthly Chapter Meeting. “Plastic Pollution Problems.” Speaker Dr. Enid Sisskin. In addition to human health concerns there are serious environmental concerns. Most shorebirds, sea turtles and various other marine organisms have plastics inside them. Much of the plastics entering the rivers and oceans is “single use” items such as plastic bags, cups, bottles, straws, etc. All of us can help reduce the amount of these types of plastics reaching waterways by using less and disposing of them properly.
Dr. Sisskin received her PhD from Columbia University, worked at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences as a researcher, at Everglades National Park as a Resource specialist, and as a Lecturer at the University of West Florida.
