WA Marine Debris Project- October 13 & 14 2018 – Join hundreds of volunteers across Western Australia, gathering to look after our beautiful coastlines, waterways and marine life.

Tangaroa Blue is calling on citizen scientists, schools, community groups, corporate groups and all ocean lovers to participate in the 2018 Marine Debris Project. Formerly named the WA Beach Clean-up Event, our new name reflects the important role of data collection in the clean-up process. The clean-up data you collect will help us track litter to its source and prevent it from entering the waste stream and harming our environment and marine life. All materials, volunteer insurance and logistical support will be provided, all we need is lots of energy and many hands to help remove marine debris from the coast.

Step 1: Find a favourite beach, river or waterway that need’s a clean-up and register to participate here.

Step 2: Enlist your friends and family to help for a few hours at your clean-up event sometime over the October 13-14 weekend.

Step 3: Await the delivery of your clean-up and data record kit and follow the advice to get your team ready for action!

Step 4: On the day, collect and audit marine debris, record data for upload later or use the new AMDI data app to record directly into Tangaroa Blue Australian Marine Debris Initiative Database.
