Sailing to #SaveOurSeas
Plastic waste is choking our coastlines and seas, but what can we do about it?
We’re on a voyage of discovery aboard the Amelie Rose, learning more about plastic pollution and exploring potential solutions to this crisis.
Join us, and let’s learn together how to #SaveOurSeas.
About the Project
In 2018 we sailed the Amelie Rose with a volunteer crew around the English Channel, stopping at harbours along the way.
Each time we dropped the anchor the crew took part in local activities, talked to activists, scientists and researchers from the area, and also investigated other interesting stories about the sea-plastics crisis. We then shared what they learned via our Social Media feeds.
Together we hoped to answer key questions about where plastic pollution is coming from, where it ends up, what damage it causes and how we can deal with it.
Our interactive map shows where and when we were in harbour if you would like to visit us, and also the joining and leaving dates for each leg if you'd like to sign up as crew.
