The Galapagos made us fall in LOVE with the ocean all over again! In the words of our crew member, Val Godden, we're "still in-awe of last week’s #5gyeresexpedition2019 ([link removed][UNIQID]) to the Galapagos with an inspiring group of adventurers, activists and plastic pollution experts from around the globe! During the voyage, we connected with incredibly WILD nature while discussing the plastic problem and sharing ideas + solutions about how to keep places like the Galapagos free of #microplastics ([link removed][UNIQID]) !"
