Soaring Eagles assist in ICCS
For one hour, all over the world, a united effort to add to knowledge and understanding of the issue of marine litter.Together with many people, we joined the International Coastal Cleanup Singapore this year under the NParks & Nature Society. The section of beach we were assigned to is known to be frequented by fishermen. We are not saying that the litter is theirs. We all know that the tide comes and goes and it is perfectly easy for the for the rubbish that has been thrown out to come back. it is also possible that the litter we ses is not ours. As advised by team leader, we were to pick litter for an hour, and record everything down. The point is that our data would contribute towards the bigger picture. after an hours' work, we had six bags of litter. The weight of our litter is probably not too impressive, but as we focused on the smaller litter (microplastics and styrofoam) ... "IT's someone else's problem" has to stop. Thus we take ownership of litter - regardless ours or not. We Care, therefore we Save. Citizen Science like this presents opportunity for us to do things for our world. Lets each do our part towards reducing litter!
