Turtle Island Restoration Network mobilizes people to restore oceans, preserve rivers and streams, and protect the marine wildlife that call these blue-green waters home. This project is to determine if micro plastics in our ocean have reached Cocos Island National Park, Costa Rica, a remote island in the Pacific 350 miles from the mainland Costa Rica.
Todd is the Executive Director and Founder of the Turtle Island Restoration Network (TIRN) and has over 40 years experience protecting and restoring endangered species and habitats. With a lifetime of knowledge, and a Masters in Biology, Todd’s current focus is turning research into policy that protects and restores endangered marine species and ocean ecosystems. Currently, he is focused on creating the bi-national Cocos-Galapagos Swimway, and a range of other high profile TIRN initiatives.
