Congratulations Eliana Sequeira, who will be joining the exXpedition Round the World 2019-2021. eXXpedition Round the World is a pioneering all-female sailing voyage and scientific research mission to circumnavigate the globe via four ocean Gyres and the Arctic. Founded in 2014, they have run expeditions all over the world. Previous scientific research has highlighted the endemic nature of microplastics within our ocean environments globally. Their focus now is to advance a better understanding of the plastics issue as a whole and to work with industry to pinpoint solutions and policy at a global level by addressing knowledge-gaps and delivering evidence to inform effective solutions. When Eliana told us she'd been accepted for their 13th leg, we immediately transferred her 100 euros!
