Join Us for a Shoreline Debris Family Research Project!
What? Adopt the same 10 meter wide beach section anywhere around the Salish Sea. This could be a fresh water or salt water shoreline.
Conduct a monthly survey for one year (May 2021-May 2022).
Why? This citizen science project will provide a community science approach to offer a better understanding of the following questions:
1) What are the major types/sources of marine debris?
2) What is the rate of debris deposition?
3) Does debris deposition change spatially?
Additionally, it has been proven that participation in clean-up activities is effective to raise awareness of the marine debris problem!
How? To begin, please refer to Steps 1-3 below!
