Britt Buirs is a marine biologist and artist with a passion for protecting the wild spaces of our Earth. She resides in a small rural town surrounded by the sea, where she has managed a citizen science microplastic study.

Britt anticipates this expedition to be equally difficult and inspiring as she witness first hand the impact of plastic pollution in a different part of the world. She looks forward to working together with a group of like-minded women on solutions to the problem.
