NZ marine litter to be tackled at source

Sustainable Coastlines Charitable Trust has been commissioned to undertake an independent review of New Zealand coastal litter.

Due to its often light-weight nature, litter travels easily through the environment where it impacts New Zealand’s freshwater, coasts and marine environment.

The one-year investigation will obtain and review all accessible data on New Zealand coastal litter and existing education interventions and develop two robust and scientifically reputable frameworks and methodologies for analysing litter data and litter interventions. Data from the study will be published on the Sustainable Coastlines Website.
