The Caribbean coastline of the Yucatán Peninsula is famous for its beautiful beaches, clear blue water, and diversity of wildlife. But under the surface of the water lies a different story.

As the world continues to churn out millions of tonnes of plastic each year, more and more of it ends up in the ocean and on our shores. If we don’t reduce our plastic use, experts say that by 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than there are fish.

This film follows diver Tamara Adame as she battles the growing plastic waste that plagues Yucatán’s fragile reefs, marine life, and even her own livelihood.

This is Mermaids Against Plastic: Tamara, a Free Roaming Studios production.
