How #TeamSeas going to Clean 30 Million Pounds of Ocean Trash
To make this project a reality, MrBeast (and his two friends, fellow YouTuber Mark Rober and Campaign Director Matt Fitzgerald) partnered with two nonprofits: Ocean Conservancy, a D.C.-based organization that works to protect the world’s oceans; and The Ocean Cleanup, Boyan Slat’s organization that is continually developing (and implementing) new technologies that remove plastic from oceans and rivers.
This project will focus a lot of its energy into “ghost gear.” Not only is abandoned fishing gear “some of the deadliest ocean trash,” as it is engineered to kill marine animals, but it is also “super tricky to recover,” according to #TeamSeas. For that reason, #TeamSeas is working with Ocean Conservancy’s Global Ghost Gear Initiative to target ghost gear “graveyards” in the ocean.
Every $1 you donate is one less pound of trash in the ocean, you can support this campain by donating a small ammount, To donate visit their official website https://teamseas.org
