“Plastic Ocean: How A Sea Captain's Chance Discovery Launched a Determined Quest to Save the Oceans”

  Colby College in Waterville recently hosted a talk by Oceanographic Research Vessel Captain Charles Moore, author of Plastic Ocean: How A Sea Captain's Chance Discovery Launched a Determined Quest to Save the Oceans.

Captain Charles Moore was returning from HAwaii when he noticed scraps of trash floating by every time he came on deck. This caused him to become a scientist-activist and to write his book "Plastic Ocean: How A Sea Captain's Chance Discovery Launched a Determined Quest to Save the Oceans.”

This talk was recorded April 12, 2012 at the Ostrove Auditorium, Diamond Building, Colby College Campus in Waterville.
