Charles Moore

Plastic Ocean: How Bad Is It?

In 1997 Captain Charles Moore discovered plastic in the ocean in the North Pacific Subtropical Gyre. Dubbed the Great North Pacific Garbage Patch, this estimated three million tons of plastic debris is still growing in the Northeast Pacific between Hawaii and the West Coast. He spoke at the Aquarium on March 6, 2012.
