Ocean Missions teaches people about marine life and protection through excursions on Iceland’s largest sailboat, Opal.

Ms Ovide has a master’s degree in marine and coastal management and is currently researching micro-plastic ocean pollution at the University of Iceland.

Each presentation in the Island SOS series highlights a different island and topic.

Tickets for the talk, which will begin at 3pm, are $10 for BUEI members and $15 for non-members.
