Ocean Health: Record attempt for fastest time around Australia to halt plastic pollution
Plastic trash clogs the oceans, kills wildlife and snags keels and rudders. In an attempt to raise awareness about the millions of tons of plastic sloshing around on the high seas, Save Our Oceans and Australian sailor Ian Thomson have teamed up. Thomson will set off in late April to break the record for a non-stop solo circumnavigation of Australia. The current record is owned by David Beard AUS in 68 days 8 hours and 30 minutes. Thomson wants to do it in less than 50 days. Read the report.
