Late notice but if anyone is looking for something to do this morning then this is the talk to attend.


Coinciding with Saturday’s Salamanca market, a series of free public talks about plastic pollution in the world’s oceans will begin this weekend at the IMAS building as part of the seven week exhibition Vanishing Point Unseen.

This week’s talk (Saturday 14 October at 10am) is by scientist and environmentalist Matt Dell, who co-founded the long-running South West Marine Debris Cleanup.

Matt’s talk is titled “South West Marine Debris Clean Up – an annual expedition to Tasmania’s rugged southwest beaches to remove marine debris.”


At IMAS (Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies) on the waterfront opposite Salamanca Place in Hobart.
