CHARITIES AND NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS
CHARITIES AND NON-PROFITS
The expedition is being funded by a combination of the Team Peninsula crew
and the support of selected partners.
All funds raised above and beyond the cost of the expedition will go towards Team Peninsula's selected charities and non-profits as one-off donations after the race.
We are focused on increasing awareness and education about the plight of our oceans in order to improve the responsible use, disposal and recycling of plastic.
Below are Team Peninsula's confirmed charities and non-profit partners:
Plastic Oceans UK
Team Peninsula are proud to support Plastic Oceans UK, experts on plastic pollution for over a decade, starting with the award-winning documentary A Plastic Ocean, which was praised by Sir David Attenborough as “one of the most important films of our time”.
Plastic Oceans UK are committed to long-lasting change through solving the ocean plastics crisis and changing attitudes to stop plastic reaching the ocean. They are focused on raising awareness about the impacts of ocean plastic pollution by investing in education and supporting resources and partnering with key organisations and institutions. The organisation recognises the importance of science and with the support of their relationships with leading scientists ensure that their messaging is backed by peer-reviewed science. By developing globally credible behaviour change programmes, we now aim to empower young leaders and everyone across society to rethink the way we use and value plastic – to become more “plastic intelligent” in all aspects of life.
Team Peninsula have chosen to collaborate with Plastic Oceans UK as their mission fully aligns with Team Peninsula’s cause, which is to raise awareness and support education about the ever-increasing issue of plastics in the world's ocean to change attitudes, behaviour and corporate and governmental policy.
Team Peninsula will distribute a part share of funds above the cost of the expedition in order to support Plastic Oceans UK’s critical input into solving the plastic crisis.

Team Peninsula are proud to support Azraq, a grassroots marine conservation organisation registered in the United Arab Emirates!
Azraq is the Arabic word for Blue. Its mission is to end the destruction of habitat and slaughter of wildlife in the world’s oceans in order to conserve and protect ecosystems and species.
Azraq aims to EDUCATE through awareness programs and community presentations, MOTIVATE individuals, organisations and communities at large to make a difference and ACTIVATE them by offering a range of activities on, in and around the ocean.
Team Peninsula have chosen to collaborate with Azraq as their mission fully aligns with Team Peninsula’s cause which is to raise awareness about the ever-increasing issue of plastics in the world's oceans.
Team Peninsula will distribute a part share of funds from activities such as the sale of the boat after the race in order to sponsor Azraq's future activities.
