Sunset Beach, Geraldton, Western Australia

To help out volunteers around the country Tangaroa Blue Foundation has just released two videos which might be of use to you for this weekend’s WA Beach Clean Up events.

The first one is ‘How to run a beach or river clean- up’ and the second one is on ‘How to collect data for the Australian Marine Debris Inititative’. This last one shows you how to sort and count marine debris collected during your beach or river clean-up so so that you can also submit it to the Australian Marine Debris Database, and contribute to finding solutions that prevent marine debris from occurring in the first place.

These are well worth watching for those of you who are new to coordinating clean-ups and/or the data collection side of things.

Please feel free to pass the link on to anyone else you think might be interested.
