In order to map the currents around the Galapagos islands in more detail, we will deploy special drifters near the Galapagos Islands. These are small, floating buoys carried along by the ocean current. For this project we will use a new type of drifter that is specifically made to study the transport of plastic on the ocean surface. By sponsoring such a drifter, you can contribute to the development of the predictive clean-up tool.
