The problem

An estimated 50% of all ocean plastic are deadly “ghost nets” (abandoned fishing gear), killing over 650,000 marine animals every year. That’s right--Whales, turtles, dolphins and all kinds of cuddly ocean babies.

The solution

Veteran sailors GPS-tag ghost nets when they see them at sea, then send out a crew to remove them from the ocean!

about The project

Ocean Voyages Institute has been a leader in oceanic research and cleanups since 1979. In 2020, they broke the record for the largest single mid-ocean cleanup, hauling over 340,000 lbs. Ocean Voyages Institute GPS-tags `ghost nets` (abandoned fishing gear) and then deploys veteran sailors and islanders to pick them up.

Capt. Charles MooreDiscovered the Great Pacific Garbage Patch

That’s Captain Charles Moore. He’s the oceanographer and researcher that literally discovered the North Pacific Trash Gyre, known as the “Great Pacific Garbage Patch.” His 1999 study showed that there was six times more plastic in this part of the ocean than the zooplankton that feeds ocean life.

That’s Brooke. She’s a marine biologist and zoologist who spent 18 years living on the ocean 🤯. She’s sailed through the trash gyres 4 times. The fourth time she said “enough”, and came to shore to shift from research into practical action.
