I absolutely love travelling because it brings me into contact with amazing people I would never normally get the chance to meet. The team of Bangladeshi men who assist with my drone surveys are amazing, kind-hearted, hilarious, cheeky, dedicated, passionate and hard-working. I love that humour transcends all languages. Here, we have gotten lost on our way back from our surveying site, and we are in a hurry as a storm is coming. For a moment, it all gets a bit frantic. But eventually we figure out where we are headed, and then we all fall about laughing and shouting 'it's all ok!', ⠀ ⠀ Massive shout-out to the amazing #Rakib (left ) who is a brilliant, talented, resourceful, observant and passionate research assistant. He would make a brilliant scientist, and has been invaluable to us all throughout this trip. He also has a winning smile and is full of positive energy no matter the time, day or night. What a legend. ⠀ ⠀ #oneworld #onefamily #globalcommunity #friends #internationalfriends #researchassistant #readyrakib #workingtogether #collaborate #noboundaries#expeditionplastic @insidenatgeo

Yesterday

Science in the Field awww yeaaahhh.⠀ Today I'm working with the Quadrat Crew (official band name ) to sample plastic pollution levels along the riverbank. We create a 10x10m sample area and throw a quadrat 20 times within it, photographing it to analyse for plastic litter, and repeat three times along the bank. ⠀ This is particularly interesting for me, as it's the lo-tech equivalent of my drone flying - where I survey 100x10m regions of the bank, taking aerial images which I then run through a tailored machine learning algorithm (developed by my company @EllipsisEnvironmental ) to detect plastic litter. ⠀ ⠀ The quadrats are: cheap, lo-tech, historically used and quick/easy to train to use, BUT only give a small sample, are very time-consuming, and often difficult/impossible on remote, inaccessible or dangerous areas. ⠀ The drone is: quick, efficient, easy, and safer, and gives scientifically robust/representative results BUT is expensive, takes time to train, and new technology (so no old data to compare to ). ⠀ So, on this expedition, we are doing both! #science #research #technology : ) ⠀ ⠀ I'm excited to compare the data to see how they correlate, and also to be building a baseline for comparison of aerial imagery in the future. This is the world's first aerial survey of the #Ganges from #seatosource , and will provide valuable data for our global #planetorplastic research.⠀ ⠀ #dronesforgood #dronetechnology #machinelearning #algorithm #citizenscience #femaledronepilot #dronesforscience#quadrats #fieldwork #sampling #quadratcrew #datacollection #scienceinthefield #reallifescience@insidenategeo #expeditionplastic @ellipsisenvironmental #elevatingperspectives ⠀ ⠀ Also I love my @sorelfootwear sandals - super comfy and great in the heat!⠀ ⠀ Photo: @lillysedaghat

Sunsets are my favourite moments on the boat. The heat of the day recedes, the fishing boats all come in to shore, the riverbank community shifts from sleepy to bustling, and the team gathers around on the top deck for our daily meeting, sharing feedback and updates on each team's successes for the day, discussing methodologies, planning the next day and sharing stories and laughter. Then it's downstairs for a delicious meal, bucket shower and maybe even a mini movie night before bed - I delight in sharing some of my favourite short films projected on to a bedsheet tied up on the boat's railings.⠀ Our home-away-from-home and sense of routine is now so familiar, it feels as though we've been away for months. The team works alongside each other like a well-oiled machine, wordlessly supporting one another and united in our shared experience of this purposeful, powerful adventure. #expeditionplastic @insidenatgeo #womeninscience #allfemaleteam #bethechange #onefamily #expedition #scienceinthefield #research #plasticpollution #teamwork #family #sciencesisters #pioneering #trailblazers #rolemodels #leadership

Leachate. This, while walking the dumps, the landfills, the monstrosity we have been creating. You can look at it and "feel" how toxic it is. Yet, we continue to send out garbage unsegregated. It is a chicken-and-egg issue, of course, but surely we can take the first step? This dark liquid making it into the soil, into our crops, into the tummies of wildlife feeding off of it ... I would give a thought about #Planetorplastic With #expeditionplastic , #seatosource @insidenatgeo

Today the RAIN CAME!! Finally, some relief from the scorching heat : ) ⠀ It's amazing how much difference a change in temperature can make after days of endless heat. The whole team rushed to the deck to celebrate the fresh cool water, and we had a joyful impromptu dance party. We have only been on expedition for a couple of weeks, so I can't imagine the feeling of relief and excitement in the rural communities when the rains arrive after months of drought.⠀ This is an isolated rainshower, however - the proper monsoon rains are still over a month away. But still, it was a welcome break and gave us all a chance to feel refreshed (and do our laundry, have showers, and wash our hair!! ) ⠀ #rain #rainstorm #rainshower #cool #refreshing #danceparty #IMissTheRainsDownInBangladesh #mood #expeditionplastic #outdoorshower #openairshower #freshwater #expedition #bollywood #moves #cutarug #salsaqueens #dance #raindance

We're thrilled to be providing the @natgeo all-female research team with Shade™ All-Natural Sunscreen for their Source to Sea expedition on the river Ganges. They're taking 2 months to investigate the level, sources and impact of plastic pollution from the activities, villages, towns and cities along the river, the third biggest polluter of the oceans after the Mekong and Yangtze rivers. 😊 #Repost @ellieworldwide • • • • • • With temperatures regularly exceeding 45C/113F and UV Index at 13 (Extreme ), sun safety is absolutely critical for our team. While we are out on the water (which is even more exposed due to reflection ), we make sure to cover up, use reflective umbrellas for shade during breaks, and use plenty of suncream - our team is using @notthenormltd Shade Suncream - non-nano zinc oxide, plastic free (whoop! ) and totally natural. It lasts all day through sweat and salt spray, is non-greasy and comes in awesome travel tins. We also have @loveavasol face sticks which come in cardboard tubes that fit in our pockets and are tinted with cocoa for darker skin (three shades available ) We make sure to drink plenty of water with rehydration salts, and rest regularly. The heat can drain you very quickly, so we make sure not to pace ourselves and to be sensible if feeling tired. The water and fish team conducts most of our work between 4am and 11am so we are back on the boat during the midday heat, and the teams working in the communities stay in the shade throughout the day. ⠀ On days like today, it definitely feels like the sun is an unofficial and inescapable expedition member - ever-present and highly influential on our daily life. ⠀ #sun #sunsafety #suncream #sunlotion #heatstroke #fieldwork #lifeinthefield #scienceinaction #researcher #expeditionplastic #expedition #boatlife #heatwave #shadesuncream #shade #safety #shadeallnaturalsunscreen #naturalsunscreen #nationalgeographic @insidenatgeo

Today I'm out with the water team, as my survey sites are inaccessible by land. The water team work tirelessly to collect samples from water, sediment and air at multiple points along the river, from close to the bank as well as the middle of the river. In this region, the river is 7 miles wide, so the water team's little research RIB has a long journey! ⠀ #expeditionplastic #waterteam @imogennapper #scienceinthefield #research #sampling #boatlife

This is the view from the portholes in our expedition boat - I absolutely love it. This afternoon, I am enjoying the view from the bowside shower room as I clean off after a particularly hot and sweaty survey day. With no AC, limited use of power for the fans, and long days without any breeze, these bucket showers are the only temporary source of refresh/relief from the heat. Even though the water is warm, and you become instantly hot and sticky again as soon as you get out, for these couple of minutes each day gazing out at this view and dousing myself in warm water, I get a sense of solitude, cleansing and time to recharge. ⠀ #expeditionplastic #bucketshower #fieldwork #lifeinthefield #clean #view #boatlife #recharge #luxury

This is the Hilsa, ইলিশ, or Tenualosa ilisha - a popular fish all along the Ganges but especially here in the Meghna River in the Bay of Bengal (the delta region fed into by the Ganges ). It is the National Fish of Bangladesh and a species they are immensely proud of. It is eaten on special occasions such as prayer days to the goddess Laskshmi, or for weddings where the family of the groom presents a pair of Ilish to the family of the bride; although this tradition is declining as the fish becomes scarcer and its value sometimes exceeds $100 per kilo.⠀ ⠀ Hilsa contributes about 12% of the country's total fish production and about 1.15% of GDP in Bangladesh. About 450,000 people are directly involved in the catching of the fish as a large part of their livelihood; around four to five million people are indirectly involved with the trade.⠀ ⠀ The use of finer fishing nets and advanced trawling techniques, along with environmental degradation of the rivers reducing breeding grounds means that the species is now in decline; the Hilsha is heading towards extinction in certain regions.⠀ ⠀ At each of our sites, the Fish Team is conducting surveys at the fish markets to identify the Hilsa and many other local species, measuring the sizes and prices of each, the nets used, and fishing techniques in the area. Our Socioeconomic Team is also working in local fishing communities to learn more about their livelihoods and the challenges they are facing, to inform understanding about the pressures of the local industry.⠀ ⠀ #expeditionplastic #fishing #fieldwork #overfishing #research #biodiversity #species

Making friends with the locals... Meet Billly, one of my new followers...literally. As part of my risk assessment for the drone flights, I have had to include a whole section on 'animal interference: goats' due to the number of boisterous little guys like Billy roaming around the riverbanks. They are inquisitive and fearless, but very cute, We've been told that further north there is a breed of pygmy goats, so we're on the lookout for a baby one of those 🤞🐐 #expeditionplastic #dronesforgood #boatlife #goatlife #fieldwork #dronepilot #animals #bangladesh #tinygoatbabies #pygmygoatplease

The informal #waste sector is incredible in #India Every morning we go out we see waste pickers, collectors, and Kabadiwallas. These plastic bottles are headed for sale to an aggregator from a small Kabadiwalla in the narrow streets of the city. Many people's livelihood depends on collection of waste for recycling, but they only collect valuable materials and typically have no government support or infrastructure. Solutions to the plastic pollution issue need to be inclusive of the people in this complex economic system and #ExpeditionPlastic is working towards that. @natgeoindia @insidenatgeo @universityofga @ugaengineering @ugaresearch @youngblood kathryn @brooksamy90 @navin_das

The entire coastline of our first site is strewn with bright blue plastic sheeting - buried solid in the clay, impossible to remove, and now slowly disintegrating into microplastics in the midday sun. It comes from the wrapping around the large concrete blocks used to build extensive (and seriously impressive ) flood defences that run for miles and miles along the coastline. The flood defences are an absolutely vital necessity for a country whose entire population lives or relies on the riverbanks, yet whose geography means widespread monsoon flooding every year. The flood defences save lives, crops and homes, so in this case plastic pollution is a much lesser priority. But there must be an alternative for the manufature and wrapping of these blocks. #innovationneeded #plasticalternatives#plasticpollution #industrialwaste #manufacturing #expeditionplastic #bangladesh@insidenatgeo

One of the most wonderful aspects of this expedition is getting to meet the local communities, especially the children, and speak to them about what they want their future to look like. Mia (left ) and Ima (right ) both want to be teachers when they grow up, and say they want to live in 'a happy place'. They also both giggle a lot, and find drones fascinating. This morning they are not at school as they are helping their mother fetch water, but they usually go to school every day, and their English is very good (definitely much better than my Bangla! ) ⠀ #educationforall #oneworld #onefamily #community #whoruntheworld #girlsinSTEM #bangladesh #empowerment #leadership #teaching #riverganga #motherganga #seatosource#expeditionplastic @insidenatgeo

Spending time with fishing communities on the lead-up to #worldenvironmentday has taught me a lot about the sustenance that comes from river and water systems and the lives that depend on them. Approximately 400 million people live along the #Ganges , making it the worlds most populated river basin. These communities are intimately connected to this body of water - living, breathing, praying, loving, surviving, and dying along its banks. The health of humans depends upon the health of our waters. Now more than ever we are being called as a species to look at our relationship to consumerism and waste and our future on this planet. We can all do better, for each other, for other species with which we share this small planet, and for future generations who need us to act now. Be the change. @insidenatgeo #Bangladesh #expeditionplastic #planetorplastic

It was a quiet weekday morning, early, around 7:30am. Our team had come to this small neighborhood to track litter deposits within a few 100-meter transect, chosen randomly by a computer-generated algorithm. . . Most people were still asleep, the main corridor already swept clean in the morning light, a fresh start for Ramadan. . . We finished, and in search of a place to rest, two team members sat on a stoop carved out from the surrounding pink wall, recovering from the morning activity, rehydrating from the heat. . . Suddenly, the door behind us opened and a mother and her daughter looked out to see who was making noise this early in the morning. . . We smiled, and we explained what we were doing— an all-female team of international scientists from National Geographic conducting research on plastic. . . I asked the little girl what her name was in Bengali and what grade she was in, and told her mother that her daughter was smart, inquisitive, and beautiful. She smiled again and replied in Bengali with something I didn’t understand. . . I turned to my Bangladeshi friend and teammate Sabrina and she translated the mother’s message: “My daughter says she hopes to be like you when she grows up.” . . I was so moved. There was something about the little girl that struck me. I pulled a new set of bamboo utensils from my backpack and handed them to her. “For you,” I said, “A gift.” She smiled shyly and took the packet with both hands. We exchanged a moment and then the team was off to the next site. . . @insidenatgeo #ExpeditionPlastic #moments #girlscan #bangladesh

I’ve been on a beautiful journey in Bangladesh with an international, all-female team of scientists who are working with National Geographic and partners to scientifically document plastic waste in the Ganges watershed from sea to source. The team is focused on working with local communities to develop holistic and inclusive solutions to plastic and its detrimental impact on our planet. This has been an incredible adventure - but the most meaningful part for me is connecting with communities who make me believe in humanity and hope for a better future. Here Sumaiaya and her sister Suborna participate in a youth community clean-up in Bhola district. I’m always grateful for the gift of this work. @insidenatgeo @natgeo #ExpeditionPlastic
