On Tuesday in our Vessel Operations class, we went on a research vessel called the Artic Sunrise. The Artic Sunrise belongs to an organization dedicated to saving the Earth from pollution called Greenpeace. When we were on board the vessel we got to tour it and heard a little bit of about where Greenpeace got the ship from and the whole story behind it. We learned some really cool and interesting things.
When we were on board the vessel a thought occurred to me. Greenpeace and the Billion Oyster Project have basically the same goal in mind. We want to end pollution and make our water bodies back to its natural state. They do a lot of the things that we do just on a bigger scale. They travel around the world. We travel around the Harbor. They take water samples. So do we. It is good to know that their are other people who have the same goal as us and that is to end pollution and restore the world back to its original state.
