Costa Rica Microplastic Hunt

March of 2018 I went to Costa Rica to work with CSU Channel Islands and National University of Costa Rica with Dr. Karol Ulate and a group of undergraduates to look for microplastics.  With the help of a group of undergraduates we were able to collect water, sand, crabs and near shore fish samples to quantify the amount of microplastics in the area near Tamarindo.
