Review for Algalita Marine Research and Education, Long Beach, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Since I have been involved with oceans and watersheds my entire life, I have seen the negative changes caused by human actions and plastic. The Algalita Marine Research Foundation has a core of dedicated people who are researching and making positive changes for our ocean and I wanted to be part of that change process. Being a scientist myself, it was important for me to be associated with a group that has integrity in their research. The organization's early and continuing innovative research brought the plight of our oceans to the forefront of public awareness. We continue to be the authoritative research and education foundation concerning the issue of marine plastic pollution.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

public outreach at venues and as a speaker at various organizations. It was great to see the huge media coverage after helping build the Junk Raft made of plastic bottles. Its voyage to Hawaii advertised the problem of marine plastic pollution.
