Where's The Ocean Cleanup?


The Ocean Cleanup

2021 July 16 - In about two weeks, The Ocean Cleanup with System 002, aka Jenny,
will launch from Victoria’s coast, returning to the Great Pacific Garbage Patch (GPGP)
with the next iteration of their ocean cleanup design for two six-week tests.

To us, direct action to mitigate a problem (ocean debris), is commendable and worth our support,
even if it's just by raising awareness. Not 100% sure yet what the content for this page will be,
so we'll build it as the project unfolds. Got ideas? Write to us at support@patbaywebcam.com
