Symposium Rules

Committee commit in order to reduce plastic waste during the symposium event, committee provide refilable galoon that use any glasses or tumbler of participants. We estimates plastic bottle reducing such as :

Pre Symposium Mobula Workshop : 65 participants x 3 times of drink time = 195 plastic bottles

Shark and Ray Symposium : 250 participants x 2 days x 3 times of drink time = 1.500 plastic bottles

The result shows at least 1.695 plastic bottles reduced during the symposium, this is small thing but have big impact to marine life, including shark and ray where almost plastic waste will end up in our ocean.
