Registration Form for Marine Debris Monitoring Programme
Join the 2017-2019 NUS-NParks marine debris monitoring programme and help us establish a marine trash baseline for Singapore!

Data on both macro-debris (>5 mm) and microplastics (1 – 5 mm) will be collected from 20 quadrats (2.5 m by 2.5 m) in six sites alternate month.
Sites sampled on odd months: Lim Chu Kang, Selimang, Pulau Ubin
Sites sampled on even months: Pasir Ris, Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal beach, Sisters' Islands

Sign up for the programme with 20-40 participants and you will be guided through the data collection exercise. As a participating coordinator, you will be in-charge of gathering participants for the event and co-leading your peers/students in the survey.

A research sampling kit and cleanup supplies such as trash bags and gloves will be provided as required.

Why research marine trash?
Marine trash is a great cause of concern due to its presence in all our oceans and adverse impact on the marine environment and wildlife.

This quantitative sampling will supplement more than 10 years of annual data on marine debris from the International Coastal Cleanup Singapore and provide data on temporal and seasonal variations of macro-debris and microplastics in Singapore.

What is the duration, time and location of sampling?
Each sampling exercise would take 2.5 hours and being tide-dependent, limits the sampling time and dates. Certain sites could only be sampled at low tides (<1.2 m).
Morning sampling is advised to begin at 8:30am while late afternoon sampling is advised to begin at 3:00pm.
