Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
This project was intended to help the Port Phillip EcoCentre establish a long-term monitoring program to track microplastic pollution in Port Phillip Bay. We trialed, assessed, and designed an implementation plan for the Baykeeper Beach Litter Audit at nine pre-selected sites. We collected preliminary data and developed informational guides, instructional videos, and promotional flyers to recruit and inform citizen scientists. The monitoring program has potential to serve as a tool for management of the bay over the next fifty years.
