Challenge

China mainland coastline is about 18000 km, a conservative estimate of the coastline that regularly cleaned is only 629 km, which is only 3.49% of the total. The rest 96.51% we seldom take care, of which a large part of the beach we even know nothing about the marine litter status. What is the situation of China's distribution on marine litter? What exactly is the marine litter be composed of, and where it could be from?

Thru collecting and analyzing trash data in many surveys on different locations, the bi-monthly and annual report will help the public, the institute, the authority be noticed of the marine litter situation, also can support marine environment protection policy making properly.
