You can visit the Pacific tsunami debris

sea-dragon.jpgA quick follow up to Tuesday's post about the Japanese tsunami debris that's drifting across the North Pacific. Two SoCal nonprofits that campaign against plastic pollution, the 5 Gyres Institute and the Algalita Marine Research Foundation, will let you join a study expedition to the debris field next year on board Pangaea Exploration's Sea Dragon. It's a working trip for them and you, but you have to pony up $13,500 to take part — more if you want to be on the second leg of the voyage.
