BENEFITING: THE 5 GYRES INSTITUTE

EVENT DATE: Jun 01, 2012

THE STORY:

 

In May and June of 2012, a crew of researchers led by 5 Gyres Institute, Algalita Marine Research Foundation, and Pangaea Expoloration, will embark on a two-month long research voyage across the Pacific Ocean. Setting sail from the Marshall Islands, located southwest of Hawaii, the crew will sail for the month of May through the Western Pacific Garbage Patch in the North Pacific Gyre.  Their mission: to collect and catalogue the density of plastic pollution in the Pacific Ocean. Upon arrival in Japan, the crew will engage in a week-long layover in Tokyo, a scientific Symposium will be held at the Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology. This will bring non-scientists, journalists, students and interested parties together to increase public awareness of the environmental plastic issue. On May 28th, the crew will embark for the second leg of the voyage back across the Pacific traveling from Japan to Hawaii. During this time, the crew will travel through the projected Japanese tsunami debris field, to track and study the movement and composition of the materials that are slowly towards Hawaii and the North American coastline.    Please help support our cause to elimiate plastic pollution in the oceans by donating to this project. Thank you!
