Happy New Year! We hope everyone is having a fantastic start to 2023.
As we spend the winter months preparing and planning, our expedition season begins to take shape with an exiciting schedule on the horizon that continues our work impacting the problem of marine debris. This year we are excited for new collaborations and reconnecting with partners that will expand our educational programs, outreach and remote island cleanups.
