“Turtles Swimming in a Plastic Ocean” has been selected as a finalist in an art contest which
addresses the impact of plastic on our oceans. The Chaco Waves for Change is sending one
artist on a 5 Gyres discovery expedition through the South Pacific Garbage Patch. This is a
tremendous opportunity to further develop artwork on plastic by learning directly from the
people who have done the most research on the impacts of plastic pollution in the ocean.
