     Ming-Hui Liao has long been passionate about ocean conservation. In 2000, National Geography Magazine published a stunning photo of an albatross that died because it's stomach filled with plastic debris. This not only caught her attention but also led her into a long journey studying marine debris. In 2006, she quit her job as a pharmacist and started to devote herself entirely in marine environmental protection. Liao's curiosity about the marine debris drove her to join a research expedition, sailing 2995 km from Hawaii to Vancouver in 2011. "A yacht with 13 crewmembers from 5 countries, including the inexperienced me, sailed into the North Pacific and explored the less-known marine debris gyres." This 22-day adventure reshaped her perception of the ocean and led her to a different point of view of marine protection, from the ocean. She hopes to share her expedition experience with more people and tell them the true stories of marine debris, which have long been happening and not far away from where we now stand.
