A new report by the Secretariat of the UN’s Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals (CMS) confirms that plastic pollution is impacting land and freshwater species protected by the UN’s Convention on Migratory Species in the Asia-Pacific Region.
The report focuses on the Asia-Pacific region and identifies the impacts of plastic pollution on land and freshwater species protected under the CMS. The study included case studies on the Ganges and Mekong river basins, which together contribute an estimated 200,000 tons of plastic pollution to the Indian Ocean and the Pacific Ocean every year.
