The Tangaroa Blue Foundation clean ups form part of the Australian Marine Debris Initiative which is an on-ground program that removes marine debris from around the Australian coastline and collects data on what is found. This data is submitted into the Australian Marine Debris Database which is used to identify the sources and solutions to marine debris in an effort to improve the health of both the marine and coastal environments. The project is therefore more than just a beach clean-up as using the data collected it is possible to work with Government agencies and industry to make changes to the design or use of these items so they do not end up on our beaches in the first place.
