Zoo Map - National Zoo - Smithsonian

Special Exhibit – "Washed Ashore: Art to Save the Sea," a larger-than-life exhibit of 17 marine wildlife sculptures—from jellyfish to sharks—made entirely of plastic pollution directly recovered from oceans.

Placed throughout the Smithsonian's National Zoo, these massive sculptures represent the more than 315 billion pounds of plastic in oceans, illustrating the devastating effects of the ocean's deadliest predator—trash. (Map)
