Ocean Plastic Pollution frequents our screens, conversations and consciousness often these days, as its unequivocal threat as a global crisis increases but it's direct relation to ourselves and our everyday lives here in Aotearoa can be a seemingly remote reality at times, therefore sometimes making it difficult to navigate. 

Raquelle de Vine, of Algalita Marine Research and Education South Pacific will share about navigating this issue through intertwining her stories at sea with her work on land, working towards a world where plastic pollution is unthinkable. Raquelle has over 18,000 nautical miles of blue water sailing researching and documenting plastic pollution in both the North and South Pacific, second in charge to Captain Charles Moore, the discoverer of “The Great Pacific Garbage Patch”. 

This is brought to you free of charge but we encourage a small Koha towards our programming costs.
