The Camps Bay High School Environmental Club hosts regular clean ups in the Camps Bay area. Last week, the Club cleaned up in the Maiden’s Cove area and made use of the Marine Debris Tracker App to report the litter that they found.
By collecting data about where litter is seen and found – be it in the ocean or on your doorstep – ordinary citizens can contribute to critical scientific research.
The data collected helps scientists and researchers better understand the big picture of the plastic pollution crisis. The free Marine Debris Tracker app is an open data citizen movement, powered by Morgan Stanley and is available in both the Apple and Google Play Stores.
