The Fakarava Project to Reduce Plastic Waste

iss 16

The International Superyacht Society (ISS) together with The International SeaKeepers Society is bringing ocean conservation and awareness of plastic waste to the children of French Polynesia by conducting educational sessions at local schools and distributing reusable water bottles.
French Polynesia is 1% land and 99% ocean in one of the most remote areas of the world and the islands are facing serious problems with recycling trash and plastic debris which is often visible on land and the surrounding lagoons. The joint initiative is being led by a yacht owner and advanced by Captain John Crupi together with Tahiti Expeditions (co-owned by ISS Board Member Christelle Holler) under the expert guidance of local scientist and environmental advocate Dr. Cecile Gaspar.


Some efforts are already being made in French Polynesia and some recycling is shipped back to Tahiti, however, there is more work to be done.
To make a donation, please email the captain of Dorothea III, John Crupi at john.m.crupi@gmail.com for more information and payment options.
Together we can make a difference.
