The Pacific Terrific Crew are undertaking the row to raise a significant amount of money for Mind, the mental health charity. They provide advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem whilst campaigning to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding. Because of Mind, millions more people have access to advice and support thanks to their information and services, both nationally and locally.
COMBATTING PLASTIC POLLUTION
The crew will also be raising awareness and championing solutions to the issue of plastics within our oceans.
Every day approximately 8 million pieces of plastic find their way into our oceans with recent studies revealing marine plastic pollution in 100% of marine turtles, 59% of whales, 36% of seals and 40% of seabird species examined.
It is estimated that 100,000 marine mammals and turtles, and 1 million sea birds are killed by marine plastic pollution annually.
