Christine Liang, at SIT, and Donna Peterson, the Senior Waste Officer at WasteNet Southland, have collaborated to gather data on microplastics. This project has been built to include school children from EnviroSchools Southland, ages ranging from primary, intermediate, and high school students. MicroInvestigators are the school students who, as part of their education, are highlighting awareness of plastic pollution in local waterways and coastal areas.


Our aim is to raise awareness about microplastics in waterways, to involve all sections of education and to make change for the sustainability and life of the waterways.
