WE TAKE ACTION BY COMBINING:

Sailing, Science

& Education

 

About

Plastic pollution has become one of the greatest threats to the world’s oceans. The Sail and Explore Association is conducting sailing expeditions with citizen scientists to collect data to gain a better understanding on the type, quantity and composition of ocean plastics. In addition, we support local organi-zations and sensitize and educate people about global microplastic pollution. We want to play an active role in contributing to a solution to this critical problem.

 

Expeditions 2021

AZORES

Leg 1: 14.-20.August

Leg 2: 21.-27.August

The Azores are a remote group of islands in the Atlantic at the very edge of the North Atlantic Gyre.

This expedition will be the second of its kind and a follow up expedition to our expedition in 2019, which was the first one ever that has been conducted in the Azores,  allowing us to predict and monitor the amount of microplastics in this remote area.

In order to obtain the most accurate picture possible, detailed data on the quantity and composition of the materials found there is needed.
