Imagine a world where the oceans are free of plastic trash…
Algalita envisions a marine environment that is healthy, sustainable and productive for all living creatures, free from plastic pollution. We believe that together, we can combat the crisis through research, education, and action. Do you share our vision?
What we do:
As the pioneers in the study of plastic pollution, we were the first to spearhead the research methodology for collecting and analyzing microplastic samples from the ocean.
Captain Moore and his research team continue to monitor one of the most polluted areas of the world – the North Pacific Gyre, home of the swirling vortex of plastic trash known as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.
Algalita bridges real-world science with real-time solutions to inspire teachers and students to find their place within the movement to combat plastic pollution in their own schools and communities.
