The Algalita Marine Research
Foundation continues to study the
accumulation and impact of plastic marine
debris on the world’s oceans.
JUNKraft, raft made from 15,000 plastic
bottles, was sailed by Algalita staff from
Long Beach, California to Hawaii during the summer of 2008 to bring attention to the
issue of plastic marine debris.
JUNKride will follow two Algalita staff
bicycling from Vancouver, Canada to
Tijuana, Mexico to share 100’s of samples
of the mid-Pacific Plastic soup
educators, organizations and legislators
along the west coast of North America.
