Washed Ashore at the Toronto Zoo

September 3rd- November 20 2019

Washed Ashore is an aesthetically powerful art installation that is  built completely from plastics found in oceans and waterways around the  world. A first for Canada, this unique exhibit educates about the  negative and devastating effects of plastic pollution and to spark  positive changes in consumer habits. Each year, sea birds, whales,  seals, sea turtles and other marine life die after ingesting plastic or  becoming entangled in the plastic debris and approximately 300 million  pounds of plastic is produced globally each year and less than 10  percent of that is recycled.
