If there’s one man who knows it ‘all’ about my chosen field it’s this guy… Captain Charles Moore.
An icon and role model to many, Captain Moore famously stumbled across floating plastics when sailing from Hawaii to California in 1997. The shock, disgust and impending actions of Charles led to the word hearing of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch for the first time.
Charles established the Algalita Marine Research Institute and has led global action and research into this issue for over 15 years. In 2011 I had the pleasure of meeting Charles at his home in Long Beach, California after my own voyage to the Garbage Patch and now it’s your turn!
Captain Moore is coming to Australia as part of his Plastic Pollution Conversation tour promoting his new book, ‘Plastic Ocean’. You can meet Charles in Sydney on 26th Sept at Taronga Zoo, 27th Sept at North Bondi RSL, Huskisson Sept. 24th, Melbourne 23rd Sept and Hobart Sept 21st. Entry is by donation or by purchasing a signed copy of the book for $20.
