The ultimate goal of all our activities is a trash-free ocean. We investigate the sources, transport, fate and impacts of plastic marine debris, and share our knowledge to stimulate better ocean stewardship.

We need you to track what happens to plastics once they are in our oceans, and their effects on both marine and human life.
