Volunteers wanted: Beach Clean-up
Conservation Volunteers Australia
are hosting beach clean-ups in May. They aim to collect as much litter as possible from north-west beaches which will be sorted and reported to the Australian Marine Debris Database, an Australia-wide citizen science project mapping the rubbish issue.
CVA will also conduct a microplastics survey to help determine if there are any microplastics present. Results of this survey will be uploaded to AUSMAP, another Australia-wide citizen science project mapping microplastics and their movements.
