At Endurothon Oz, we have one main focus, clean the oceans.
Though it sounds simple, the fact is it’s not. With one garbage truck full of plastic being dumped into the ocean every minute, it is now predicted that by 2050, there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean! This is alarming and pretty scary too.
