Plastic waste lasts in the environment for several decades. They float, fragment, and concentrate in vortices better known as “continents” of plastic. They also do damage! More than 700 marine species are known to be impacted, mainly by entanglement and ingestion. In French Mediterranean waters, between 80 and 100% of sea turtles ingest plastics.
To fight against the pollution of aquatic environments and the decline of species that inhabit our oceans, seas and rivers, HISA has diversified its activities and decided to act also for the preservation of aquatic environments and its biodiversity.
