WWF’s work on marine litter began in 2014, when a two-year Coastal Watch programme was launched together with several partners. Coastal Watch sought to draw the public’s attention to our marine litter problem and to help us understand the situation at hand for more targeted action. With help from 2,000 volunteers and the fishing community, we conducted territory-wide clean-ups and surveys on marine litter and marine biodiversity. The results, presented in “Turning the Tide Against Marine Litter”
, provide us with a clearer picture of what’s at stake and what needs to be done. The initiative highlighted the need for involvement of numerous stakeholders to develop long-term solutions to marine litter.
