Plastic pollution and microplastics in particular are a significant threat to marine ecosystems and human health.

The Big Microplastic Survey is a global project that will use citizen science to gather essential data about microplastics and mesoplastic in rivers, lakes and coastal regions

Get involved!  The project is open to anyone, whether you are an organisation, academic institution, or a concerned individual.  If you have access to a beach, riverbank, lakeside, or coastline you can get involved.

What's involved

“The whole of the eco systems of the world are based on the healthy ocean and if that part of the planet becomes dysfunctional and goes wrong, then the whole of life on this planet will suffer”

Sir David Attenborough
