Microplastics In Yellowstone Lake And What Can Be Done
/

Researchers have discovered tiny particles in the aquatic food chain — and even in the stomachs of trout — in the Yellowstone ecosystem.  These particles are known as “microplastics” and can cause many environmental problems.

We sit down with Senior Fisheries Biologist for Yellowstone National Park Todd Koel and Ph.D Candidate for Fish and Wildlife Biology Hayley Glassic with Montana State University to discuss the causes and impacts of microplastics found in one of the most pristine watersheds in the country – Yellowstone Lake.
