    Microplastics Initiative

    Adventuress is partnering with Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream and the Center for Urban Waters to expand our opportunities for citizen science, as well as to educate people who come aboard about the emerging issue of Microplastics in Puget Sound. Throughought the sailing season, scoopers from Ben and Jerry's volunteer their time during select public sails to scoop ice cream and help our shipboard educators and participants aboard take microplastics samples. We are also taking samples during overnight programs, getting students involved with very relevant citizen science opportunities. We send the samples to researchers at the Center for Urban Waters to be processed.

    The following Sound Experience Microplastics Map shows the samples that have been processed to date, and is updated as more samples are inputed! We are grateful to all the partnerships coming together so we can be part of this exciting new research!
