Alison Teal is a female version of "Indiana Jones," who explores ancient cultures with her camera and pink eco surfboard to share global secrets of survival, sustainability, health and happiness through her comedic and inspirational film and blog series called Alison's Adventures. This woman hopes this she will help people become aware of the problem that concerns all of us and take some actions about it.

Alison was exploring the remote area near the Lance Formation, Wyoming, USA last month when she stumbled across a 65-million-year-old triceratops jaw bone while exploring in rural America. She was stunned from the fact that she accidentally discovered the bone and became part of a team that worked tirelessly to excavate it from the dirt. Once the bone had been removed, she and Dr. Eriksen, the co-founder of the 5 Gyres Institute, a non-profit looking to empower action against plastic pollution, were able to determine that the bone once made up the jaw of a triceratops.

"After hours of excavation, I tripped over what I thought was a rock and it turned out to be a 65-million-year-old triceratops jaw bone. Digging up dinosaurs was a shocking reality check that extinction is real, and if we don’t make changes in our daily lives, we too can become just another rock layer in history." said Alison.

Excited about her accidental discovery, she said in front of the cameras "I can’t wait to share this with the world and show how important it is that we don’t go extinct just like the dinosaurs."
