This project will involve the collection of litter from 26kms of foreshore along Port Phillip Bay as well as sections of the Paterson River Creek through the Carrum/Seaford Region

We will be identifying different types of litter (macro and micro) entering urban and ocean water systems, and their potential impacts on these ecosystems. We will also be entering all data collected into the National Database via Tangaroa Blue collection method and the Australian Marine Debris Database. We will also be identifying specific locations where litter is heavily concentrated and these areas will be mapped and feedback allowed with land managers to better manage litter hotspots.
All data collected will be shared with councils and other government departments to show the results and findings.

This project will educate volunteers abut different waste types collected, and how they can undertake their own collection and enter their own data into the national database.
