About This Project

The purpose of this work is to determine which prey species contribute the most microplastics to the diet of the marine mammals inhabiting the coasts of Peninsula Valdes, and what happens to these particles once they enter the organisms. Understanding the dynamics of microplastics in marine mammals, considered sentinels of ecosystems, will allow us to assess the overall health status of the environment surrounding them.
