BIEPA IS PROVIDING A COPY OF A VERY INTERESTING STUDY BY SCIENTISTS AT CSIRO, Australia’s national science agency; Project AWARE, which is a global non-profit connecting community action and policy; and Ocean Conservancy, a US-based advocacy non-profit, that evaluated the relationship between land-based debris and what is found on corresponding seafloors.
BIEPA MEMBER, RHYS WALKER, HAS BEEN APPLYING FOR AND USING GRANTS TO COLLECT MARINE DEBRIS FROM BRIBIE ISLAND’S WESTERN FORESHORE FOR THE PAST FOUR YEARS.
HIS REPORTS ON WHAT HE COLLECTS GO TO A RESEARCH DATABASE.
THANKS TO ALL THE VOLUNTEERS WHO WORK SO HARD TO GATHER THE NECESSARY DATA. SEE ATTACHED REPORT ON RESEARCH THAT SHOWS GENERAL MISMATCH BETWEEN SHORELINES AND SEAFLOOR.
IT WILL BE A GOOD DAY WHEN OUR OCEANS AND FORESHORES ARE CLEAN AGAIN.
