2019-2020 Adventure Series: Rachael Z. Miller: Cleaning the World’s Waterways

April 16

National Geographic Explorer and Founder of the Rozalia Project and the Cora Ball, Rachael Z. Miller shares her adventures researching solutions to cleaning our planet’s oceans.

Rachael Miller is the Cora Ballfounder of the microfiber catcher, which is the first human-scale consumer solution to synthetic microfiber pollution in our oceans, lakes, and rivers. She leads a dedicated team at the Rozalia Project who works to protect our ocean and waterways through clean-up initiatives, pollution prevention education, and solutions-based research in urban and coastal waters from the surface to the seafloor. Under her leadership, the Rozalia Project has removed nearly 1,000,000 pieces of trash from our oceans and waterways.

The Rozalia Project achieves its mission through focused expeditions onboard the 60-foot sailing research vessel American Promise. Captained by Miller, American Promise is outfitted with state of the art research equipment to assist the team with their mission. The sloop was originally designed by Ted Hood and in 1986 was sailed by Dodge Morgan for a record breaking solo circumnavigation.
