2009 Far North QLD Marine Debris Project Report

In 2007 TBF launched the Far North Queensland Marine Debris Project (FNQMDP) with an aim of identifying the types of debris that is impacting the region, then to find ways of reducing those items from ending up in the ocean. Over 3,000 TBF volunteers have collected more than 500,000 items of rubbish from beaches around Australia and New Zealand since 2004. In its fifth year of the Australian Marine Debris Project, data on what is making up the debris and where it is coming from is helping to create strategies to reduce the amount of rubbish in local waters.
