A Worthy Adventure
I can't help but feel supremely jealous of fellow blogger, Sara Bayles who is currently in Chile and about to embark on an exciting (and most worthy) mission. Sara and her hubbie have joined The 5 Gyres Institute on a research expedition from Chile to Tahiti (seriously, how awesome does that sound?!). They are studying the effects of plastic on plankton, and I'm sure that this study will shed some light on how truly serious this problem is becoming (or more likely, already is). You can follow their adventure (and see their fantastic photos) on Sara's blog and you can also donate to the mission (they still haven't reached their fundraising goal). What a ridiculously amazing thing to do!
