The plastic has become a serious problem for the oceans and the more information we have about the impact we will have more tools to find better solutions.

 24 Women. 3,000 nautical miles. One mission: Make the unseen seen. 

The EXXPEDITION is a pioneering All-Female sailing voyage and scientific research mission to raise awareness and solutions for the devastating environmental and health impacts of single-use plastic and toxics in the world’s oceans. The Pacific Ocean is the world’s largest ocean and home of an amazing diverse of marine life. The journey from the island of Hawaii to the British Columbia and the Pacific North west will inspire action to protect these places.
