Oceanic Society — International (2010)


The ever-increasing quantity of debris being introduced into our world’s oceans threatens all marine life, including sea turtles. Oceanic Society used SWOT funding to support teams of students from seven coastal locations (Belize, Costa Rica, Hawaii (USA), Kenya, Micronesia, Palau, and Suriname) to collect plastic debris from local sea turtle nesting beaches, create sea turtle sculptures from that debris, and ship the sculptures to the exhibit in Hawaii.
