Jennifer Lavers | Seabirds and Plastics

Jennifer is a Marine Biologist at the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies (IMAS) in Tasmania, Australia. Her research focuses on marine plastic pollution, including plastic-associated chemicals. She uses seabirds as "sentinel species": essentially they are her little "CIA investigators". They criss-cross huge oceans in search of food, returning to the land (usually islands) with bellies full of plastic they mistakenly ingested because the plastic looked or smelled like prey. By studying what the birds eat, Jennifer can learn a lot about the health of the oceans.
