Expedition: Great Pacific Garbage Patch

Algalita Marine Research Foundation of Long Beach, California has a unique fund-raising idea underway. For $10,000, donors get to join in a 20-day cruise across the Pacific to look for garbage. Not just any trash, though… this cruise heads into the vortex of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch to conduct field research to help understand, control and (we hope) eradicate this floating land o’ plenty… which we are told is twice the size of Texas.

An island nation emerges...


Sailing from Honolulu to GPGP and on to Vancouver, BC on a 72-foot racing sloop Sea Dragon. the lucky donors will partake in a working cruise. Besides the honor of supporting the foundation with a cash award, cruisers will be totin’ and haulin’, doing KP, and standing night watch. Hop on board this worthy cause at http://www.algalita.org
