Adventure Series: What’s Down There?
January 16, 2014
Founder and Executive Director of Rozalia Project, Rachael Miller, joins us to present an eye-opening talk about what’s lurking in the urban and coastal waters of Long Island Sound, Narragansett Bay, and the Gulf of Maine. Miller will discuss the problem of marine debris in our waters and describe her trash-hunting adventures that include getting attacked by a lobster, freeing an octopus, and making some unusual finds while picking up more than 500,000 pieces of ocean trash together with 10,500 participants all over the United States.
Rozalia Project is dedicated to finding and removing marine debris through action, technology, outreach, and research. The not-for-profit organization uses underwater robots, nets, and hands to clean the ocean surface to the sea floor, operating aboard the historic 60′ sailing vessel American Promise.
