MMBC Garbage ExhibitThe Maritime Museum of BC is pleased to announce that it will be launching the exhibit titled The Great Pacific Garbage Patch on April 12, 2019.

About the Exhibit
The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is the largest accumulation of ocean plastic and human-made debris in the world. It covers a surface area twice the size of Texas, and contains up to an estimated 3.6 trillion pieces. But did you know it’s not actually a “patch”? Or how about the fact that garbage is accumulating in five distinct areas of our oceans? And did you know that your laundry is likely contributing to the problem?
 
Visit the Maritime Museum of BC to learn more about marine debris and plastic in our oceans, including why it is exists and how it continues to grow. You’ll also learn about the efforts from people around the world who are working to better the situation, and even how you can make small changes in your daily life that can contribute to big changes for our oceans.
 
“We are very excited to launch this exhibit,” said Brittany Vis, Associate Director. “We feel it is a very important and timely subject matter as our society struggles with reducing our waste. We hope the exhibit will help inform people about the general state of our oceans, and we hope it empowers individuals to be a part of the collective solution.” 
 
Exhibit Dates: April 12 – October 27, 2019
Location: 634 Humboldt Street, Victoria BC
Hours of Operation:
• 10am-5pm, Tuesday-Sunday
• May 20 to August 29, 10am-5pm daily
 
The Museum will host a launch event for this exhibit on May 1st, featuring speakers, live music, and local vendors. More details about the launch event will follow shortly.
