Heidi Taylor is the Managing Director of Tangaroa Blue, a not for profit organisation involved in the clean up and cataloguing of marine debris from our coastlines, as well as educational campaigns regarding plastic waste management and minimisation.
In this episode of Reef and Rivers, Heidi describes the scale of the marine debris problem, the impacts on our environment and the activities undertaken by Tangaroa Blue to address these issues.
Central to this strategy is Heidi's philosophy of recording the waste collected and where possible identifying the sources so that we can better target our management strategies to the sources.
