Capt. Moore to talk marine plastics in North Carolina

13 10 2011

With impeccable timing, given our recent SEANET recruiting blitz in North Carolina, Captain Charles Moore, founder of Algalita Marine Research Foundation, will be giving a presentation at Topsail Beach in NC next month. Captain Moore is credited with bringing global attention to the vast plastic soup swirling in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Since the 1997 voyage that sparked Moore’s interest in the plastic crisis, he and his team have also made trips to similar cauldrons of plastic filled sea water in the middle of the Atlantic and Indian oceans.

Captain Moore will be giving a talk at the Topsail Island Welcome Center on November 14th at 12:30pm. The event is limited to 125 people, and if you would like to attend, please email Ginger Taylor at If you can’t attend on the 14th, Captain Moore will give an additional presentation at the University of North Carolina-Wilmington on November 15th at 7pm.

If your SEANET blogger were anywhere near NC, she would for certain go see Captain Moore! So get to it, new Seanetters and other NC friends!
