Australian Microplastic Assessment Project OFFICIAL LAUNCH

  • Manly Art Gallery 1 West Esplanade Manly, NSW, 2095 Australia (map)

We would like to invite you to the launch of Australian Microplastic Assessment Project (AUSMAP). AUSMAP is a nation-wide citizen science initiative for surveying shorelines, to educate and engage communities and to obtain widespread reliable data on the presence of microplastic particles in Australian aquatic environments. 

Please join AUSMAP Program Manager, Dr Michelle Blewitt and Research Scientist Dr Scott Wilson, to launch our innovative new AUSMAP project. A demonstration of the microplastic research methodology, and data revealing how much plastic has infiltrated the beach at Manly Cove will be a highlight of the event.

Light refreshments will served. To avoid using single use plastic cups, please BYO reusable coffee cup or we will have some to purchase on the day, as part of our fundraising.
