We also have an ID manual, education kit for teachers and how to manuals to help you organise the activity at http://www.tangaroablue.org/resources.html

|Reduce the occurrence of marine debris in our oceans|
|Monitoring marine debris along a river/beach|
Tangaroa Blue Foundation coordinates the Australian Marine Debris Initiative (AMDI), a network of volunteers, communities, schools, indigenous rangers, industry bodies and government organisations. The objectives of the AMDI are to remove marine debris from the environment, collect scientific data on what is removed, track to the source wherever possible, and engage stakeholders to find practical ways to stop those items from entering the environment in the first place.
