Reunion in the Pacific

Today the Junk Raft blog notes that they’ve rendezvouz’d in the middle of the Pacific ocean with Roz Savage — another courageous soul crossing the Pacific solo to advocate for marine conservation.I’ve written about the Junk Raft before, but to review, they are sailing from California to Hawaii on a raft made of plastic to raise awareness about plastic pollution in the oceans. And Roz Savage started her 3-stage journey in May and expects to be in Hawaii at the end of this month. You can vote through the end of August for Roz to receive part of a $2.5 million grant sponsored by American Express.What these folks are doing is pretty remarkable, if you ask me.[Image via www.junkraft.blogspot.com]
