National Geographic have been bringing attention to some of the world’s most daring and active adventurers since 2004 when they launched their annual Adventurer of the Year accolade.

Each year they cast the net far and wide to select a group of people who have made some extraordinary achievements in exploration, conservation, and adventure sports. This year their net dipped into the Pacific and caught our very own adventurer David de Rothschild!
He’s in good company with other nominees such as Ed Stafford who walked the Amazon from source to mouth, Jessica Watson who sailed the world at the youthful age of just 17 and Matt Moniz, aged 10, who climbed to the highest point in all 50 United States in just 43 days.

This is a really exciting nomination for the Plastiki team and a great chance for us to continue to bring attention to the ailing health of our oceans. The nomination falls under the ‘Voyager’ category after David led the Plastiki expedition during their 4 month crossing of the Pacific, a mammoth 8,500 miles of adventure and exploration.
So this is where we ask you for your help….you knew it was coming right? Head over to the National Geographic site and vote for David to become 2010’s Adventurer of the Year and help the Plastiki continue to raise awareness for plastic waste in our oceans.
