If you're on Maui and find some marine debris, please let us know! We're sending a full 40-foot shipping container to Parley and Adidas, who will be upcycling it to make shoes!
Please note: we can only send hard plastics (no pvc, filmy plastic or wrappers) and nets.
Searching for SHARKastics on Palmyra Atoll (2012-2015)
While doing a runway rehabilitation project with The Nature Conservancy, the SHARKastics Team also collected marine debris from all around the atoll (results coming soon). Subsequent visits to Palmyra have yielded similar collection/research opportunities. The debris types slightly differ from what we typically find in HI, which is very interesting. There are plenty of sharks and SHARKastics!
