The SeaCleaners Recruits Plastic Pollution Volunteer Observers

The SeaCleaners Recruits Plastic Pollution Volunteer Observers

Professional divers, cruisers, boat and sailboat renters are the first witnesses of ocean plastic pollution. In order to enable them to take action against this scourge, The SeaCleaners is setting up in 2020 a Volunteer Observers programme.

On the occasion of boot Dusseldorf 2020, to be held from 18 to 26 January, The SeaCleaners, an association for the preservation of the ocean that fights against plastic pollution, announces the launch of its very first recruitment campaign for Volunteer Observers.

An Observation Programme, for what purpose?

Led by The SeaCleaners' scientific department, the Volunteer Observers programme invites its members to carry out voluntary observation missions of floating plastic pollution at sea in the areas of the world most affected by this plague.

The observations collected will be processed, analysed and exploited within a reference database on global plastic pollution. This will be used in the framework of targeted information and awareness campaigns conducted by the association, but also to determine the future intervention zones of THE MANTA, an innovative vessel that will be capable of collecting and mass treating floating oceanic macro-waste before it fragments.

Through the precise characterization of the extent and nature of plastic litter, The SeaCleaners' database will also enrich the knowledge of the international scientific community and considerably improve the relevance of actions, on land or at sea, aimed at reducing plastic pollution and protecting marine biodiversity.

What will be observed?

A scientific protocol as well as a detailed methodological guide will enable each Volunteer Observer to carry out data surveys in accordance with precise specifications.

Among other things, the size of the floating waste, its nature (plastic materials, rubber, textiles, paper/cardboard, treated wood, metal), GPS coordinates and environmental parameters likely to influence slick drift will be recorded.

The observation records will include the raw data collected, but also photos and videos.

How to become a Volunteer Observer?

The Volunteer Observer programme is open to seasoned marine professionals: diving clubs, boat rental companies, leisure companies, etc. People wishing to contribute to this program must have their own observation equipment (AFN, binoculars, GPS). Successful candidates will be given the status of "Official Observer" and their collaboration with The SeaCleaners will be the subject of an agreement.

To become a Volunteer Observer, please send your application to explorers@theseacleaners.org, specifying your name, e-mail address, entity, geographical area of your activity and type of activity.

[VIRTUAL REALITY EXPERIENCE] Discover the Manta, The SeaCleaners' Giant Ship Designed to Collect Plastic Waste in the Seas

For the first time, The SeaCleaners will be in the Love your Ocean area of BOOT 2020  Hall 11 Stand E04 with an exclusive Virtual Reality device and models, introducing their giant pioneering vessel “The Manta” designed to collect plastic waste in the ocean.
Created in 2016 by renowned skipper Yvan Bourgnon, The SeaCleaners is a French-Swiss non-for-profit association whose purpose is to preserve the ocean by reducing plastic pollution. It intervenes both on land and at sea. An innovative flagship solution “The Manta” will be the first giant vessel capable of collecting and mass-treating floating ocean waste before it becomes fragmented.
An observer member of the UN Environment Programme, supported by the Albert II of Monaco Foundation, The SeaCleaners acts on 4 fronts to achieve massive plastic pollution reduction:
  • The collection of floating waste and the removal of plastic litter from the oceans,
  • Observation and learning through the collection of scientific data and the provision of The Manta as a platform for research and studies for scientists from all round the world,
  • Education and awareness-raising campaigns to educate future generations mostly in countries impacted by oceanic plastic pollution,
  • Boosting the local and circular economy, through the recycling and valorization of collected plastics as economic levers for local development.

About Yvan Bourgnon

A talented French-Swiss skipper, Yvan Bourgnon starts sailing at the age of eight with his parents for a world tour where he discovers the ocean he will never leave.

Over the course of his career, Yvan has earned an impressive record in multihull sports and also in offshore racing on the most successful boats. With his older brother, Laurent Bourgnon, he won the Transat Jacques-Vabre in 1997.
