Acadia National Park

Beneath the ocean's surface lies a rugged seafloor much like the mountainous terrain around you. Over the last two million years, a series of glaciers scoured and shaped this land. The last of these icy bulldozers left a mound of rocky debris - a glacial moraine - 360 miles out to sea.Today this submerged moraine influences Atlantic Ocean currents by deflecting warm water from the south and circulating colder currents from the north. As a result, the Gulf of Maine contains remarkably cool, oxygen-rich water - the perfect recipe for a productive marine habitat.Plankton (the round form above) thrive in the Gulf of Maine and attract a host of animals that feed upon them. The green ribbon is a micro-plastic filament, a tiny fragment of trash. Over time, this debris enters the food chain and becomes widespread throughout the ocean, poisoning or clogging the digestion of marine organisms.
