The Menace of Ocean Debris

Ocean debris, a subset of marine debris, comprises various forms of waste that find their way into our oceans. These include plastics, metals, glass, and even abandoned fishing gear. Ocean debris not only spoils the beauty of our coastlines but also endangers marine life through ingestion and entanglement. Through expert insights and real-world examples, we’ll shed light on the gravity of this issue.

Tracking Marine Debris with Technology

The Tracker is a powerful tool used by scientists and activists to monitor and address the debris problem. In this course, we’ll explore how technology, such as mobile apps and GPS, plays a crucial role in tracking and documenting instances of debris. You’ll learn how you can contribute to this effort and become part of the solution.
