The aim of the PlastiGar study project is to monitor plastic pollution in the Garonne over three years to assess its impact on biodiversity in 14 separate sites. The film shows us how the researchers carry out measurements of microplastic concentrations in the river and how the first laboratory analyses are carried out. Starting in 2019, the project will be extended to study the presence of plastic in living organisms.

Our work is guided by the way scientists question the world around them and we translate their research into images to help people to understand the world better and to awaken their curiosity and wonderment.
