BBC Radio Waves

Oct 23 2010

The team recently completed the first ever dedicated look at the South Atlantic Gyre for Plastic. While Sea Dragon skirted the northern edge, the evidence was unmistakable- plastic in the Gyre. Our just completed Jaseur Bank dive expedition down the Coast of Brazil only confirmed the same, plastic debris in these waters as well (not to mention a simple look into the Rio harbor and estuary)

The BBC just ran a series of audio reports from the team, in transit to Ascension. Good listening…
