The pollution of the oceans, rivers and lakes by (plastic) waste is one of the greatest challenges for the world society and an aspect that is increasingly attracting attention in science today. Connections and effects on humans and animals are barely extensively researched. In order to provide scientists, journalists, environmental protection organizations and NGOs worldwide with the opportunity to quickly and comprehensively find out about the state of research, the environmental organization One Earth – One Ocean e.V. has set up an extensive knowledge database on marine littering on its website. The collection offers free access to several hundred recent scientific studies from around the world.
We look forward to hearing from you about studies that we have not yet covered. Write us under E-Mail:
