Our seas and oceans used to be pristine. However, the global production of plastics skyrocketed in the last decades. The pile of plastics garbage increases all over the world. Many animals confuse plastics litter with food. As part of the food chain, we are also impacted. Scientists discovered that plastic degrades faster in the environment in tiny particles, invisible in the naked eyes called: microplastics. As a concept is extremely new, we need to do more research to find out how it affects our seas and how it affects human health.

Archipelagos, Institute of Marine Conservation, is a Greek non-profit, non-governmental organization committed to conservation of the marine and terrestrial environments of the Greek seas and islands. Archipelagos has been active since 1998 in several parts of the Greek seas (Ionian, Sporades, Central Aegean, Lybian and Eastern Aegean). Since 2000, Archipelagos' field of action has focused on the eastern Aegean. Our main terrestrial research base is located on the island of Ikaria and our main marine research base is on the island of Samos, while we also provide research stations in 3 islets of the eastern Aegean.
