Nurdle Patrol Ridealong with Jace Tunnell
Join the Nurdle Patrol and help win the fight on plastics
On this episode, Peter and Tyler talk with Jace Tunnell, Director of the Mission-Aransas National Estuarine Research Reserve and founder of the Nurdle Patrol, a citizen science project looking to gather information about where nurdles are located, remove nurdles from the environment, and create awareness about the nurdle pollution. Nurdles are small plastic pellets used in the pre-production of plastic products. They are released into the environment by the millions every year. Nurdle Patrol trains citizen scientists of all ages to survey their beach for nurdles and share findings on social media.
