Emily Penn is an oceans advocate and skipper. She has organised the largest ever community-led waste cleanup from a tiny Tongan island, trawled for microplastics on a voyage through the Arctic Northwest Passage, rounded the planet on the record-breaking biofuelled boat Earthrace, and worked on a sailing cargo ship trading western supplies for coconuts. Emily splits her time between running eXXpedition – a series of all female voyages which focus on the relationship between plastics and toxics and female health – and working on solving the ocean plastics issue with Parley for the Oceans and other corporate clients. Prior to this, Emily co-founded Pangaea Explorations, to enable scientists, filmmakers, and everyday people gain access to the most remote parts of our planet; collecting data on global issues and along the way discovered previously unknown oceanic gyres – huge areas of plastic pollution accumulation.
