Our setup runs on the yacht “Turn the Tide on Plastic” with the Skipper Dee Caffari, Liz Wardley supporting us with the sampling of the micro-plastics next to all her huge amount of tasks as well as the whole team.

Good to know about the science programme, a great overview about our Ocean health and news about the project.

The first drifters measuring, e.g. Ocean currents and temperature, were released already by the seven yachts and are part of NOAAs contribution to the science project. Take a look into the data.

Today i will fly to Cape Town and collect our data. Stay tunded!
