After months of planning and a week of intense preparation and educational activities at port in Lanzarote Marina, Seadragon’s Crew finally set sail

Over the next three weeks we’ll be posting scientific findings, journal blogposts and updates on the state of the ocean and the plastics and micro-plastics as we sail. Exxpedition’s land crew member Karen McCarthy Woolf talked to Skipper Emily Penn and Science Director Lucy Gilliam about how they will work on plastics and toxics sampling while at sea and what inspired them to put together an all-women’s trans-Atlantic voyage.
