The Plastic Undercurrent

At Christmas Island off the coast of Australia, our Sea Shepherd Australia Marine Debris Campaign crew were tested like never before against a relentless wave of plastic.

During their week-long remote campaign, 2,850 kilograms of debris was removed from beaches at the “Galapagos of the Indian Ocean.”
