Darwin and its surrounds are fortunate enough to be surrounded by some of the most beautiful coastline in the world. Unfortunately though, with modern day pressures of an expanding population, and tidal influences from abroad our beaches are littered with debris (rubbish) of all sorts. This debris is not only unsightly but it also has a huge impact on our marine life.

During this project the team will learn about the effects marine debris has on the environment and the predominant origins of this debris, before heading out to some local beaches where we will survey targeted sections of beach. Our selected beach locations are all known turtle nesting sites, important to the Top End and survival of these iconic marine species. After collection of the debris the team will catalogue and sort the debris so the data can be added to a larger national database.
