Sorting and analysing plastic pollution

Conservation Volunteers Australia in collaboration with local community groups and members conducted over 25 clean up events at key locations at Breakfast Creek in Brisbane, collecting marine debris and plastic pollution. All litter and debris collected was analysed and and logged into the national data base of our project collaborators Tangaroa Blue. Helping people  work towards a community driven solution to mitigating the impact of plastics in waterways.

By combining citizen science with on ground action we  enable members of the local community to make valuable contributions to conservation. The data collected is valuable to future research and gaining a deeper understanding of a problem through citizen science, facilitating learning and personal change in individuals and driving community action.
