Last year we launched a scientific expedition around the shores of Scotland to study the impacts of plastic pollution on iconic wildlife like gannets, puffins and basking sharks. Watch this 360 video and experience the expedition with your own eyes. You will see such beautiful places like Bass Rock, where biggest colony of gannets live, or Shiant Isles, a home to puffins, razorbills and many other birds.
During the expedition we took just under 50 samples of seawater to study and we found plastic in more than half.

A truckload worth of plastic enters our oceans every single minute. We need to protect our oceans and the amazing wildlife that lives there from plastic pollution.
