Join us on Sunday, October 14th from 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm at University Laboratory School as Captain Charles Moore makes his final stop in Hawai'i for the "The Plastic Pollution Conversation - Pacific Rim Tour 2012." Captain Moore, author of "Plastic Ocean," is a prominent seafaring environmentalist and researcher who shares his maritime encounters with the shocking amount of plastic debris in the Northeast Pacific Ocean, now commonly referred to as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.
The goal of the Pacific Rim Tour 2012 is to raise the intensity of awareness about plastic pollution, its impact, the challenges it presents and motivate individuals and groups to effect change. He will be discussing the recently completed Algalita/5 Gyres 2012 Asia Pacific Expedition through the Western Pacific Garbage Patch and the southern edge of the 2011 tsunami material swept to sea making its way across the North Pacific Gyre.
