  1. Lim Chu Kang Beach and Mangrove, 21 July 2018, Saturday, 9:30am – 12:00pm https://marinedebrissampling21jul2018.eventbrite.sg

What is it about?
It is a citizen science programme that was recently initiated to engage volunteers, schools, and organizations with an interest to survey and collect data on marine debris found on Singapore’s beaches. Click on this link or the tab above to find out more!

What will we collect and why?
Data on both macro-debris (>5 mm) and microplastics (1 – 5 mm) will be collected from six sites every alternate month. These data collected would supplement the annual ICCS data and form the national baseline of marine debris for Singapore which would help inform marine debris management.
