Oceans Without Limits – A Journey of Discovery

Embark on a voyage of discovery into the Western Indian Ocean and find out how plastic pollution is impacting this tropical paradise. “Oceans Without Limits” is an epic and cinematic Oceanic Adventure with an element of Science.
 
A crew, made up of a Skipper, Pro Diver, Marine Biologist and Filmmaker, go way off the beaten track to document their findings. They travel from South Africa to Madagascar, Seychelles, Maldives and a distant Archipelago called Chagos. Their discoveries are both unexpected and shocking!
 
Thank you for supporting our mission to end plastic pollution. By purchasing or renting our film, you are enabling us to move towards our next project which is to go back and develop a method of cleaning up remote islands that are polluted by plastic!

OUR STORY

We have all been touched by the Ocean in some form or another, with a few of us having been fortunate enough to call the Ocean ‘our office’. We are now in a position to give something back and use our journey across the Indian Ocean to highlight the plight of Plastic Pollution.

OUR MISSION

An adventure of a life time on the Indian Ocean brought three men together to explore ways to end the plastic horror engulfing our marine life. By using the latest in video and camera technology we will provided continuous insight into our travels, capturing life at sea, all action on board the motor yacht ACHARNE.

OUR BOAT

The concept of taking a well-respected ex-racing yacht and converting it to a serious ocean passage making motoryacht is not new. By reducing the yacht’s displacement by removing the sailing rig, modifying the keel, and installing a larger engine you create an extraordinary explorer yacht.

OUR DOCUMENTARIES

The journey covered some of the most spectacularly beautiful and isolated places in the worlds. After the completion of the trip a feature-length documentary was created to share what we had captured, this is Oceans Without Limits.

OUR RESEARCH

Seagrass is a true flowering plant that grows in clumps and can form extensive underwater beds. The physical structure of seagrass beds provides a combination of food and habitat which allows for high biomass and productivity of commercially important fish species. The seagrass beds in the Indian Ocean region also act as a nursery for species that inhabit adjacent habitats such as coral reefs and mangroves.

Seagrass is a bio-engineer of soft sediment habitats and maintains shoreline stability by preventing erosion of the sediment with its roots and rhizomes which disrupts currents and promotes the settling of suspended sediments and restricts their resuspension. Seagrass may also have a similar effect on suspended microplastic particles and thus increase the amount of microplastic in the sediment in areas inhabited by seagrass beds causing adverse effects within the ecosystem and its fauna.

The aim of our study was to test whether seagrass beds cause an increase in the quantity of microplastic in the sediment in the Indian Ocean where many people are reliant on the sea for both protein and income.

Due to the relevant literature, a higher quantity of microplastic was expected in areas where seagrass is present compared to areas where it is absent

Our aim is to educate, create awareness and SHARE OUR research!

With 2 more weeks of Plastic Free July still to go, there’ll always be more to say about how we can act against plastic usage and pollution. It’s a conversation that can run and run, from plastic-free August through December, through plastic-free 2021.. and beyond. This is going to be a challenge that keeps on asking, so we need to keep on giving.

But for now - Mondays can hit you with enough info/ inbox overwhelm already - kick back for a moment and let Jack Johnson drop a catchy little reminder about #singleuseplastic . 

In brief - the name is short and to the point after all - single-use plastic is disturbingly disposable, mostly petrochemical, designed to be used once then tossed or recycled. And much of it could outlive you. 
There’s a little takeaway, not throwaway, thought...

Posted @withregram • @plasticfreejuly ‘Single-use plastic is not so fantastic, we use it for a minute or two. Then it sits around for a few thousand years …maybe even more…and then it washes up on the shore.’

Thanks to our ambassador @JackJohnson for this song of encouragement and all his support. Jack has made a long-time personal commitment to reduce plastic waste in his daily life and on tour, by swapping out disposables for reusables and promoting alternatives. Check out @kokuahawaiifoundation and @byobottle for more tips, resources, and inspiration.

Let’s not be a ‘fancy pants’ and all do what we can do to reduce our waste this July and beyond!
