All waterways flow into the sea
Along with all the plastic waste they contain.
Rivers and streams not only bring water to the seas but also plastic waste. This pollution comes in the form of both macroplastics – such as torn plastic bags, sharp-edged yoghurt pots or tangled plastic string – and microplastics – that is, microparticles which are generally too small to see or touch. This plastic waste presents a risk to animals in the ocean and it enters the food chain.
Researchers can make use of increasing amounts of data on plastic litter in the world's oceans. But there are still many waterways in Germany where there is inadequate or no data about plastic waste. The “Plastic Pirates” citizen science campaign will help to fill in the gaps. Young people between 10 and 16 from Germany and Britain can take part in the campaign and have the chance to win a prize.
Data will be collected and photos taken between 16 September and 18 November 2016 to be considered for the campaign.
