Our AUSMAP programs

are building a strategic network

of activists and researchers across Australia. 

To solve the marine plastic pollution crisis we need comprehensive

action across communities, industry and government, and this can only happen

 when everyone understands the scale and magnitude of the problem.  By engaging high-schools and communities in citizen science activities we empower our participants to take leadership on systemic solutions.  A rigorous scientific methodology and collection

protocol requires trained educators and volunteers on the ground for fieldwork and

lab sessions. In order to scale up rapidly and effectively, we are engaging with

existing networks of established organisations to develop 

two core programs.
