I give a presentation about plastic pollution its effect on marine life and use my sailing trip to help explain where currents and winds carry plastic that’s tossed in the ocean. I was thrilled to see that this island’s kids seemed especially bright and tuned in to the environmental basics…we even took an after school excursion to the village landfill!
