Journal Entry 1: Expedition to explore the South Pacific Gyre

Posted by — March 21, 2011 9:05 am

I arrived in Valdivia Chile and am preparing to join the 5Gyres Expedition to research the effects of plastic pollution in the world’s oceans. I am part of a team of 13 amazing people and will be leaving in a few days to visit the last unexplored Gyre, located in the South Pacific. You can follow the journey at BagMonster, 5Gyres or at the Daily Ocean.  I have much to write, so I will make this first post short.  I posted some photos on Facebook.  I also made a short video showing my first impressions of single-use plastics in South America.
