surveying microplastic west wittering

Microplastic Beach Survey, Phase 2

On 14 March 2018, with the help of around 80 volunteers, we conducted a citizen science microplastic survey in 20 locations around the entrance to Chichester Harbour.  The aim was to take samples from a number of areas across the inter-tidal zone in order to provide information about the extent and location of the microplastics in this internationally important location.

In order to provide some statistical variance of data over time we are no planning phase 2 of the operation.  This is going to take place on Friday 22 June at 8.30 am.
