USCG CertificationOceanographic Research Vessel (Subchapter U)
Rozalia Project’s mission is to clean and protect the ocean and conserve a healthy, thriving marine ecosystem. We launched in 2010 with a focus on addressing the problem of marine debris in a unique and action-based way using a combination of restoration (cleanups), prevention through education, embracing technology and innovation and by conducting solutions-based research. May through October, we operate from the record-breaking circumnavigator, American Promise, primarily in the Gulf of Maine, out of our summer expedition base in Kittery, ME. Throughout the remainder of the year, we work from partner vessels and waterfronts nationwide. Our home base is Burlington, Vermont. Over the past eleven years, we removed over 1 million pieces of trash from our waterways, reached over 85,500 people of all ages and all backgrounds in direct programs all over the US, built an ongoing reach of 150,000 more people through an active online presence and worked or are currently working with over 250 community and education partner schools and organizations.
