Leg 5: Western Australia
This leg of the virtual voyage will take us to Western Australia. Home to the world’s largest fringing reef, the World Heritage listed Ningaloo Reef, Western Australia is home to some incredible marine life. Bounded by the Indian Ocean and the Southern Ocean, Western Australia is Australia’s largest state. We’ll be joined by a commonwealth representative who will help us to explore Western Australia’s plastics issue and the waste management strategies in place.
About Virtual Voyages
eXXpedition Virtual Voyages will give guest crew an in-depth understanding of the true impact of the plastics issue, forge and deepen relationships within our eXXpedition global community, develop solutions-based thinking and result in a plan for how each participant can apply their superpower to solve the problem.
The Virtual Voyages will include many of the best parts of eXXpedition’s at-sea missions, giving the crew onboard an unique opportunity to network with talented women from across sectors and gain the knowledge and expertise to speak with authority on the issue of plastic pollution and its solutions.
We will also be delivering the sessions on a watch schedule to allow us to loop together our multinational crew, giving us a broader perspective and understanding about the issue which needs to be solved at a global level.
