Shannon Waters: Algalita Marine Research Institute’s Tsunami and Plastic Pollution expedition

Shannon Waters of Algalita Marine Research Institute recently returned from the Japanese Tsunami and Plastic Pollution expedition (June 2012). She will share some of their preliminary findings as well as general experiences sailing across the Pacific and, sadly, witnessing too much plastic in our seas. She will also update us of current findings since the expedition.

In June of 2012, Shannon Waters joined a crew led by Algalita Marine Research Institute and the 5 Gyres Institute to sail across the Pacific Gyre researching plastic pollution and Japanese tsunami debris. Since returning from the month-long expedition, Shannon has acted as a volunteer Ambassador for Algalita and 5 Gyres, presenting to diverse audiences about the perils of plastic pollution and solutions we-collectively- can undertake. Most recently,Shannon led a plastic pollution curriculum workshop at the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Ocean Plastic Pollution Summit, attended by local teachers. In her day job, Shannon serves as the Volunteer Programs Coordinator at the California Coastal Commission, where she manages the state-wide Adopt-A-Beach Program and co-coordinates the annual Coastal Cleanup Day Program, which together engage over 100,000 volunteers annually in beach, shoreline, and creek-side cleanups. Prior to her work at the California Coastal Commission, Shannon served as the Education Coordinator for the non-profit I Love A Clean San Diego, providing and developing environmental education to thousands of San Diego’s youth, and developing an after-school program centered on watershed education and storm water pollution prevention. She received her BA from the University of California at Santa Barbara in Political Science and International Relations in 2006, where she served as the Publicity Chair of the campus-wide Environmental Affairs Board. In her free time,Shannon volunteers as the co-chair of the Rise Above Plastics Committee at the San Francisco Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation.
