Last October, citizen scientists, schools and other community groups were called on to get involved in the 2018 WA Marine Debris Project. It was a fantastic event, with 125 sites registered, including beaches, estuaries and coastal areas, covering 161 km of coast. Hundreds of volunteers spent over 2,500 volunteer hours, removing a total of 5,114 kg of debris from our environment, auditing the items and entering the data into the AMDI Database.
The full report can be found on our website here, under the WA tab.
We’d like to thank Keep Australia Beautiful WA, the Department of Biodiversity Conservation and Attractions and Local Government Authorities, who supported the event, along with the many individuals, groups and organisations that took part. Your dedication means the world to us.
