This sombering story featured last week in the Australian press about yachtsman Ivan Macfayden who recently completed a trip from Melbourne to Osaka and then across the Northern Pacific all the way to the US. It was a trip he did 10 years before, and noted the stark contrast in fish and bird life on the trip.
Next year a film documenting some of the sights of plastic around midway (some of the most remote islands in the world) will be screened. If you are interested in this kind of thing check out the trailer here. Stories like this are hard to watch, but need to be shared if positive change is to take place.
