“Turtles Swimming in a Plastic Ocean” has been selected as a finalist in an art contest which 
addresses the impact of plastic on our oceans. The Chaco Waves for Change is sending one 
artist on a 5 Gyres discovery expedition through the South Pacific Garbage Patch. This is a 
tremendous opportunity to further develop artwork on plastic by learning directly from the 
people who have done the most research on the impacts of plastic pollution in the ocean.

Please help me achieve this goal by voting for the turtles
