SHARKastics are going on a European Tour (2012-2018+)!
Mahalo to Zurich's Museum Fur Gestaltung for graciously hosting us in July 2012 at their exhibit, where we shipped a 40-ft container of ~6.6 tons (pictured below) of the 31 total tons of Kaho'olawe marine debris we collected!
The Museum has done a fantastic job with the educational display, and we're so excited that our marine debris toured Europe & Asia (>20 exhibit locations!) after it left Switzerland! The Museum graciously invited us back to Switzerland in October 2015 for the follow-up conference about its many achievements.
Mahalo nui loa to everyone who has joined our cleanup activities!
We've collected a total of 360,811 pieces of marine debris
(41,223 lbs) since
