ProyectoSub Foundation is a non-profit organisation based in Argentina. Its objective is the promotion of scientific knowledge about marine organisms and ecosystems. Citizen science and education plays an important part in reaching its objective. Just One Ocean and the Big Microplastic Survey have partnered with this organisation in order to work together to gather information about the scale of the issue on the Argentinian coastline
26 January 2020 was ‘This World Environmental Education Day’, and ProyectoSub Foundation ran a Big Microplastic Survey for youngsters along a part of the Argentine Coast. The goal was to teach them all about microplastics what happens to the waste left on the beach.
We are very excited about our partnership with ProyectoSub and in the future we intend to support their work in numerous ways through grants and combined research projects.
