Zero Plastic working group in the World Network of Island and Coastal Biosphere Reserves

Growing from the Zero Plastic campaign in Lanzarote, which has been ongoing since 2009, the “Zero Plastic” working group was launched in May 2018 at the annual meeting for the World Network of Island and Coastal Biosphere Reserves. The Zero Plastic working group unites Biosphere Reserves impacted by plastic pollution. The four-person working group coordination team includes: two members of the World Network of Island and Coastal Biosphere Reserves (Eva Cardona from the Menorca BR and Aquilino Miguelez from the Lanzarote BR) along with two members of the research network Marine Sciences For Society (Juan Baztan from CEARC at Université Paris Saclay and Bethany Jorgensen from the Civic Ecology Lab at Cornell University). The Biosphere Reserves participating in this initial step of the working group are: Archipelago Sea Area, Blekinge Archipelago, Cat Ba Archipelago, Commander Islands, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Isle of Man, Jeju, Karst and Reka River Basin Biosphere Reserve/Park Škocjanske jame, La Hotte, Lanzarote, Menorca, Ometepe, Palawan, Península de Guanahacabibes, Terres de l’Ebre, Urdaibai ...
 
Jeju and Menorca, as technical secretariats, support this process of collaborative research, along with Spain's Autonomous Organization of National Parks.
