Tasmanian Coastal Waste and Marine Debris: a partnership project between the Alcorso Foundation, Bookend Trust and the University of Tasmania’s Faculty of Education.

A statewide multi-disciplinary research project investigating marine debris issues and attitudes around Tasmania and contributing to a coordinated and integrated coastal waste education strategy is being undertaken by PhD candidate, Leah Page. 

Leah was selected from a highly competitive field of applicants after a call-out for submissions in 2013. The project aims to raise awareness and develop meaningful strategies that can facilitate action that addresses the impacts of coastal waste and marine debris.

Data collected will be shared with community, industry and government to highlight issues, heighten awareness and provide recommendations for future educational strategies to influence behavior change. 

Leah Page is undertaking her research in 2014 at the University of Tasmania’s Faculty of Education. Read Leah’s bio and research proposal >>
