Greenpeace’s ship the Beluga II is on a 2 month scientific voyage around Scotland’s coastlines, investigating the impact of ocean plastic pollution on some of the UK’s most beautiful landscapes .The first stop on the tour was on and around the Bass Rock, with water sampling for micro plastics in the area and documentation of plastic pollution in nests. As the world’s largest northern gannet colony, the Bass Rock is of international significance and the ideal starting location for this vital research and environmental campaign by Greenpeace. The crew and scientists from Greenpeace’s Research Laboratories, based at Exeter University, will be  surveying remote beaches for pollution and investigating seabird nests for plastic during hatching season. The expedition will take in sites of stunning beauty and biodiversity, including the Bass Rock, Gunna Sound, Mull, Rùm, Eigg, Skye, and the Shiant Isles in the Outer Hebrides.
