Join us at Hikoikoi Reserve, Petone Beach for a beach clean-up and Litter Intelligence survey. Give back to the beautiful moana by learning to be a citizen scientist — set up and run a survey, sort and record rubbish in an audit, and add your data to Litter Intelligence, Aotearoa New Zealand’s national database and solutions platform.

We’ll start from 9:30am, heading onto the beach for the survey, then ending with the audit. All equipment will be provided, including gloves, sacks, and a health and safety briefing.

About the Litter Intelligence Programme

Litter Intelligence is Aotearoa’s national litter monitoring programme, enabling communities to collect data, gain insights and influence action for a world without litter.

On the day, we’ll guide our group of citizen scientists through a Litter Intelligence survey and audit. This involves removing all the litter in a designated area of the beach, categorising it, measuring it, and recording it in the database. Because we survey the same area of the beach each time, you’re helping us build up a picture of the litter problem over time.

Interested in setting up your own site but can’t make the event? Please complete this form and we’ll reach out.
