Part 1: An Introduction

It is said that 0.05% of the world’s population is vegan and of that world, 71% is ocean. So therefore, evidently, at some point, a vegan will end up in the ocean. But what would become of such a vegan? What will they eat? Will they cope? Is the ocean vegan friendly? These are the riveting questions that you will soon have the answer to.

For I, Holly Jenkins, a bold vegan, will be venturing into the Arctic ocean for 5 weeks on the RRS James Clark Ross. On the 9th May 2018 we’ll be sailing out of reach of any organic wholefoods co-op, and far, far away from hummus based snacks. However, this struggle is all for a good cause. I am working with a team on board to research the effects of climate change in the Arctic.
I am packed and ocean ready. I’ve arguably brought too much stuff, but I’m bringing excess layers to cover my starved skeleton after weeks of eating (or not) the vegan food the ship has to offer. Wish me luck!
