During our very short stay in Korea, Koji and I were invited to do some presentations about the kayak expedition and our environmental campaign at a local school in Busan. Because this had been our goal from the star of the expedition, to spread awareness in regards to beach pollution and the importance of being an international community in addressing this issue, we said “of course.” The students were great and their English was excellent. They even sang a song for us. Wow!!!

While we were paddling across the Tsushima strait to Korea we came across some very unique ocean pollution which took the form of very small white Styrofoam balls that were probably left over from a larger buoy’s that had been destroyed. At times this pollution looked like a large field of snow, stretching several hundred yards, that had collected on the surface of the ocean.
