Title:
Invasive Species

Author:

Description:
A cyanotype photogram on paper documenting waste plastic removed from the environment Invasive Medusae will draw attention to urgent concerns about plastic pollution. Plastic bags are regularly found in the stomachs of dead turtles, whales and other sea animals who mistake them for jellyfish and eat them. An increase in jellyfish has been linked to the warming of the oceans and a decrease in natural predators due to pollution.
