      (NORTH VANCOUVER, B.C.)—As part of Capilano University’s Neil Brown speaker series, lifelong seafarer and ocean activist, Captain Charles Moore, is bringing his discoveries about how plastic is killing our oceans to two free events at Capilano University on Thursday, February 2. Captain Moore will share a firsthand account of how plastics are pervading our oceans in unimaginable ways at 11:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. in the North Shore Credit Union Centre for Performing Arts. While both events are open to the public, members of the Cap community (students and employees) will be given priority seating at the 11:30 a.m. event. The centre is located at Capilano University’s North Vancouver campus at 2055 Purcell Way. Captain Moore will also be available after each event to sign his recent book, Plastic Ocean: How a Sea Captain’s Chance Discovery Launched a Determined Quest to Save the Oceans.
