Pacific Plastic Vortex Cleanup

Project Kaisei will begin to attempt to clean up the gigantic Pacific Plastic Vortex this summer. The initial 70 day voyage will focus on studying the problem and testing possible collection methods. The project will also produce a National Geographic documentary on the effort.

This is an extremely large and serious problem. In a previous post, we showed Captain Charles Moore's Ted Conference presentation on the vortex.
