The plastic in the oceans annually contributes to the deaths of 1.5 million seabirds, fish, whales and sea turtles. These (micro)plastics are also dangerous for our own health. But how do we clean our oceans as efficient as possible? To answer this question, top scientists from Utrecht University need to investigate how plastic moves through our oceans. With that knowledge they can develop a model for cleaning up plastic. It is the goal to use that model in three years to rid the Galapagos Islands of plastics.

You can also transfer your donation to the Utrecht University Fund, bank account number NL43INGB0000014475, with payment reference ‘Contribute to rid our oceans of plastic’.
