✨ Join the PG Law Society for a talk on plastic pollution by Tara Proud from MCS and a screening of the beautiful documentary «Albatross». ✨

🎓 Tara Proud from the Marine Conservation Society will join us in Old College to tell us all about what MCS and Scotland are doing to fight plastic pollution, what the NGO is working on specifically, and what the most recent developments are regarding the regulation of plastics.

🍕 After Tara's talk, there will be a short break in which pizza will be served and you can get ready for the documentary of the evening.

🎥 «Albatross» is a documentary created by Chris Jordan on Midway Island in the North Pacific ocean. Mr Jordan first visited the island in September 2009, finding tens of thousands of dead Laysan albatross chicks during his stay. The documentary shines a light on the plastic crisis that has killed tens of thousands of birds on the tiny island, which sits 2,000 miles (3,200km) from the nearest continent. 🦅
