"Marine Science Youth Camp" - Cientificos de la Basura

The Chilean Marine Science Youth Camp brought together students from across the country as international leaders convened for the International Conference “Our Ocean”. During two days packed with activities, the children also visited a local beach with their teachers to examine the state of marine litter. In this standardized scientific sampling, local students were joined by fellow students from Taiwan, South Korea, South Africa, Australia, and Germany to classify and count all litter in a 3m x 3m quadrant (6 to 60 quadrants per beach).
