One of the closest beaches to the finish of a Catalina Channel crossing is Cabrillo Beach.

On the other side of Cabrillo Beach is the Port of Los Angeles where Catalina Channel ferry boats are moored.

The area has great plans to be revitalized and revamped with plans to help shape a positive future for Planet Earth.

Jenny Cornuelle Krusoe, the Executive Director of AltaSea at the Port of Los Angeles, will explain these plans and goals in Los Angeles on March 23rd at the XPRIZE Ocean Initiative: Leveraging Tech for Positive Environmental Impacts event where she will be a guest along with Benoît Lecomte who will describe The Longest Swim.

AltaSea accelerates scientific collaboration, facilitates job creation and inspires the next generation for a more sustainable ocean. Built on a historic pier with access to the deep ocean, AltaSea’s 35-acre campus brings people together to expand science-based understanding of the ocean; incubate and sustain ocean-related business; and pioneer new ocean-related education programs.

Lecomte will be in Los Angeles on March 23rd to attend the XPRIZE Ocean Initiative: Leveraging Tech for Positive Environmental Impacts event to present information on The Longest Swim.
