Abby Barrows (micro-plastic scientist/researcher) and Mike Libecki (Nat Geo explorer) embark on a journey to research climate and micro-plastics in Antarctica. Their team integrates cutting-edge technology in hopes to learn more about urgent and devastating problems with micro-plastics polluting and corrupting our planet. Abby gathered more than 60 samples of water types to look for micro-plastics in one of the most remote areas of our planet. Will the results show micro-plastic pollution in such a pristine part of our planet?
