Marine Debris Data Sheets

Friday, Feb 22, 2019

Citizen Science

At every Sea Shepherd clean-up our volunteer teams have used a consistent methodology to sort, catalogue, count and then record each item collected which has been uploaded to our Sea Shepherd Australia Marine Debris database. This has enabled us to see where the problem beaches and waterways are, what are the main types of trash we find and to do source reduction – with the aim to work collaboratively with business, councils and a range of stakeholders to stop the source of the pollutant before it enters the environment.

Data Sheets

If you would access to marine debris data please email ssmarinedebris@seashepherd.org.au and let us know what dataset you are seeking. Datasets include by year, type/category, state or national or you can request by beach/river or by Marine Debris Team.
