The impact of plastics on animals, the environment and humans is under-researched and poorly understood. However, thanks to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), we know that at least 800 marine species are harmed by plastics.
Our teams around the world clear beaches, the ocean floor and other fragile natural habitats such as mangrove forests of plastics and other human-made materials. Collected items are categorised and information is delivered to local and international organisations that advance research and help design stronger regulations.
Our staff and participants also run workshops that help international visitors and local communities reduce their own contributions to plastic pollution. In addition, over the past decade, we’ve collaborated with Fiji’s Ministry of Health to implement recycling initiatives in remote communities.
