Citizen Science

Our citizen science programmes are a great way for you to get involved, collaborate and contribute to the solution whilst gaining experience in data collection and analysis.

Upstream Battle

Did you know that 80% of marine litter globally starts life on land? Our Upstream Battle citizen science programme aims to get volunteers across the country collecting litter at key upstream sites, such as rivers, lakes and streams to provide a better understanding of the root causes of ocean pollution.

Backyard Battle

Our Backyard Battle citizen science programme gets students, teachers, volunteers and other citizen scientists out collecting litter at key inland sites, such as public recreational spaces, highways and railways, car parks, residential, retail and industrial sites to help create a better understanding of litter’s pathway across our land.
