Cleaning Up Ocean Plastics
Styrofoam, plastic toys, bouys, and even a few shoes are just a small list of items found by Close Dubois and James Middleton. The founders of Ocean Legacy Foundation and the crew members have already set a massive clean up effort in the ocean off Vancouver Island.
They have collected nearly 20 tons in just a few months! Much of the warehouse space, volunteers, and capital grants have all been donated to the Ocean Legacy Foundation. “The website is a key because people do know of spots and report picture or GPS coordinates.” Said Dubois “They tell us how this plastic is affecting their communities.”. This social interaction can help people stay involved and continue to make our oceans a better,cleaner place. By using technology the two are able to get more and more people involved in the clean up effort.
A few of the items they have collected such as the 200 pounds of shoes have been donated to a local artist for a project he’s working on. Many other items will continue to be recycled, reused, or repurposed.

During this they collected 51 different birds in a few different locations.
