Monitoring has ended for the NUS–NParks Marine Debris Monitoring Programme!

A big thank you to everyone who has helped out in the NUS–NParks Marine Debris Monitoring Programme! The monitoring programme which began in late 2017 ended in Feb 2019. With the help of volunteers, we achieved the primary objective of collecting year-round data about macro-debris and microplastics. This is a helpful complement to the ICCS dataset to address the marine debris issue in Singapore.

 We are now deep in analysis with the dataset to identify seasonal trends, compositional variation and relative burdens on our shores. We have also begun stakeholder engagement workshops and will be pleased to welcome you to this sharing in the months ahead!

Once again, thank you very much for your kind support and for caring for the environment!
