Join a Voyage to Study Marine Ecosystems – Online

Join Oceanographic Research Vessel Alguita for a voyage studying plastic pollution in the North Pacific Ocean. This September the Algalita Marine Research Foundation research team set sail to one of the most remote regions of the Pacific Ocean to study human impacts on marine ecosystems.The voyage started on September 7th, but it is not too late to get involved! We invite students and teachers to join this voyage from the classroom or from home on the Internet by providing:
• Daily updates and images from the research vessel
• The opportunity to interact with the ship’s research team and other leading researchers to ask questions and share experiences
• Lessons, activities and creative ways to integrate the experience into the classroom curriculum
• A chance to interact with students from around the world to share information, perspectives and solutions to this global issue
