A nurdle is a plastic pellet that serves as raw material in the manufacturing of plastic products. Nurdles are washing up on our beaches by the millions. They look like food to animals, but they are indigestible and they absorb other toxins in the environment so can be deadly to some animals. Nurdle Patrol is a Gulf-wide, citizen-science project looking to gather information about where nurdles are located across the Gulf of Mexico, remove them from the environment, and create awareness about the nurdle issue. Take the training video to participate in this project.
