The Algalita/5 Gyres Japan Tsunami Debris Expedition leaves this Thursday

6 06 2012

It  leaves  “. . .  weather permitting (it was set to leave Japan on June 2 (June 1 here in North America), but was delayed by a storm). On board is Nick Mallos, a conservation biologist and marine debris specialist with the Ocean Conservancy. Mallos, whom the Journal interviewed by email last week, is a member of the Ocean Conservancy’s Trash Free Seas program. He has already spent considerable time examining garbage patches in the ocean, as well as on land helping sort through the tragic mess left behind by the tsunami.”

 The National Geographic Society website will be posting updates from the ship by Nicholas Mallos on his blog.

We added the blog link to the resources at the top of our page on tracking the tsunami debrisF.C.
