Captain Charles Moore founded Algalita in 1994 with a vision of protecting our natural resources, from land to sea. At Algalita, we aim to take the Great Plastics Awakening he sparked nearly 20 years ago to the next level.

 

Algalita South Pacific


We’ve just expanded the reach of our work through the founding a South Pacific chapter of Algalita. Founded by
Algalita’s Expedition Coordinator, Raquelle Devine, this international chapter builds on programs that Algalita offers in Southern California but within a context that is locally specific to Aotearoa, New Zealand.

Our desire for understanding true environmental responsibility at its core is something that will be passed on, generation after generation.
