"Welcome Aboard!" message from Captain Moore

“Welcome aboard the Oceanographic Research Vessel Alguita! We are glad to have you with us. We will be traveling into the remotest part of our oceans- The North Pacific Central Gyre, as far as you can get from land anywhere on earth and, surprise, surprise, that area is one of the most polluted areas on the planet. We will be showing you the kinds of pollution we find out there and hopefully giving you the energy you need to do something about it!”

“Bienvenidos a bordo del Barco Alguita, un Barco de Investigación Marino que tiene rumbo por el Gyro Pacifíco, un lugar remoto donde no hay tierra por miles de millas. Y aunque es uno de los lugares mas remotos del mundo tiene contaminacíon de nuestra basura a niveles impresionantes y nosotros vamos a dar les muestras y ejemplos de esta basura y esperamos que ustedes pueden hacer algo para diminuir la problema. Gracias!”
