Anne Baker, eXXpedition

Anne Baker is an ambassador & mission co-leader for eXXpedition, an organisation that runs all-female research expeditions to investigate the causes of and solutions to ocean plastic pollution.

She was the 2nd Mate on the inaugural eXXpedition voyage across the Atlantic in 2014 and was mission leader for the Round Britain 2017 Leg 2.

"Being part of a team trying to understand in more detail how environmental and specifically ocean toxins affect women’s health is a wonderful opportunity. For my own health and also to share this through the female branches of the youth organisations I work with, principally girl guides and scouts. My third leg, comes from my recent agricultural studies during which I realised the effects of human intervention on the environment, both land and sea and highlighted the fine balance of the environmental and the impact of farming.”
