To Help Researchers Understand The Types Of Marine Debris
Keeping Australia’s beaches beautiful is up to us. By participating in one of Tangaroa Blue Foundation’s beach clean-up events, you’ll be helping to create an accurate picture of plastic pollution in Australia!
Each piece of litter collected at these beach clean-up events is grouped into several categories and sent to the AMDI Database. This includes Consumer Items, Packaging Items, Fishing Items, Remnants and Polystyrene Items — plus glass, ceramic, cloth, metal, paper, rubber and wood items.
“We’re seeking volunteers from all walks of life to get involved and help remove marine debris from the coast. We will collect data on what's found, then work on solutions to stop litter”.
