This was the scene last night at the California Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park during another busy NightLife program. It’s David Mayer de Rothschild, “British adventurer, environmentalist and head of Adventure Ecology,” giving a talk about ecology and his Plastiki boat as a part of the United Nation’s World Oceans Day.
Only Time Will Tell.

NightLife, featuring Plastiki and David de Rothschild »
This week, environmentalist David de Rothschild gives two lectures (at 7:30 pm and 8:30 pm) about his upcoming voyage across the Pacific. What makes it unique? He’s crossing the ocean in a 60-foot vessel constructed entirely of recycled materials, mostly plastic water bottles!
De Rothschild will share details of his itinerary, including his plan to navigate the Eastern Pacific Garbage Patch, a floating landfill and man-made disaster that’s twice the size of Texas.
