Dr. Chris Pincetich traveled to one of the remote survey sites leading Marine Debris Action Team research. Coast Camp in the Point Reyes National Seashore is miles from civilization and plastic pollution permeates even this idylic setting. The Sea Turtle Restoration Project turtle rode along with Chris for over 3 miles of mountainbiking, then hiking, then joined the marine debris scientific survey.

The beach was cleaned up, making all wildlife happier with a refreshed, all natural coastal environment. The plastic pollution will return, but so will Chris and his Marine Debris Action Teams!

    Great job Chris and the team! What was the biggest pollutant this time? Cigarette butts?
