Microplastics: Magnifying Marine Litter Education

Students cleaning up Taroona beach

Through this project online learning activities are being developed for schools, linked to the Australian Curriculum, on microplastic pollution in our coastal and marine environment. They are available on the Expedition Class (Bookend Trust) website and make use of data and observations from the Tasmanian South West Coastal Clean-up. They aim to build an increased awareness and understanding of plastic pollution sources and the breakdown of plastics to microplastics and the changing threat from plastics as they become smaller.
