JUNK to be built at Aquarium of the Pacific!

We're thrilled to announce that the Aquarium of the Pacific has generously offered a space on their front lawn to build "Junk", our plastic bottle raft!

As an added educational opportunity, the Aquarium invited AMRF to display "Fluke", another plastic bottle craft built by Dr. Marcus Eriksen, with students from the Environmental Charter High School. The image here shows Marcus and Aquarium staff in front of Fluke.

With daily visits to the Aquarium of 6,000-7,000 thousand people, this venue will provide tremendous visibility for the project, as well the opportunity to share AMRF's research with the public.

Special thanks to Dr. Jerry Schubel, President and CEO, Erica Noriega, Special Events Manager, and Michael Kent, Manager and Security, for their time, and valuable partership.
