South Atlantic Gyre

Surfing Soapbox: Heading out to South Atlantic Gyre

I was recently selected to experience a once-in-a-lifetime adventure and new educational experience pertaining to the environment, aboard the Sea Dragon.

The Sea Dragon is a sleek 72-foot steel hull boat sailing around the world to study the five gyres of garbage and the effects they have on our ecosystems. I will be joining an elite crew of scientists, writers and filmmakers to study the South Atlantic Gyre and the effects of plastic in our oceans.
