R4WO - Scientific protocol deployed in the Azores

The "Race for Water Odyssey" (R4WO) arrived in Horta, in the archipelago of the Azores on March 20th. The expedition implemented its scientific protocol for the first time on 5 of the island's beaches. These beaches act as natural barriers against plastic pollution, trapping and accumulating trash on their shores, and are therefore representatives of plastic pollution in the surrounding waters.
