Rhiannon Moore

Rhiannon Moore is 25 years old and is both an artist and environmental professional. She is joining leg 12 as a researcher under the direction of Dr. Peter Ross, Director of the Vancouver Aquarium’s Ocean Pollution Research Program. Rhiannon’s work will involve taking sediment and water samples along the journey, which she will analyse for microplastics. Microplastics are now recognised as a serious threat to sea life, and Rhiannon has dedicated most of her budding environmental career to find solutions and educate others on the issue.
