Join Parks Victoria Rangers in a beach litter clean up and do your bit to help fight ocean pollution. We’ll explore the impacts of marine debris and look at the way rubbish we use every day can affect local species, the oceans and even us! The session will finish with a beach clean, where we collect and analyse the rubbish found in Port Phillip Heads Marine National Park (Point Lonsdale sector), discuss where it might have come from, and figure out how we can reduce it. Data will be contributed to the AUSMAP database, after searching for and sorting microplastics.
