About the Program

It’s hard to solve a problem you can’t see - until recently, microplastic pollution presented scientists with a crisis that was invisible to the naked eye. Now we have AUSMAP - Australian Microplastic Assessment Project.

By translating data into vivid maps of plastic pollution hotspots all over Australia, AUSMAP makes it easy for everyone to see the scale & nature of this growing problem. We need to know how much is out there before we figure out what to do with it and find effective ways to mitigate this issue!

AUSMAP is a nationwide citizen science program that aims to quantify microplastic pollution, with the primary goals of identifying litter hotspots and assisting in source reduction. The program educates, engages and empowers citizens of all ages to identify microplastic hotspots, finds effective remediation strategies.

Bring your friends and your family - this community event is for people of all ages!
