Tuesday night at Patagonia headquarters Dr Clare Steele, Michaela Miller and I presented our Pervasive Plastics research to the Ventura Surfrider chapter. The rise above plastics campaign from the national surfrider foundation is directly inline with our overall project of removing plastics from our sandy beach and marine environment and educating the public on the need for change.
We were able to discuss our current projects and where we are headed with the different facets of the plan. I was very excited to meet so many other people that love the beach and want to protect it! I hope that more students from The ESRM Dept at CSU Channel Islands will be able to share their projects and be able to achieve a higher rate of public involvement.
