Identifying the Source of Marine Debris
Analysis of beach rubbish from 2007-2013 found that marine debris makes up an average of 50-60 per cent of all rubbish found on Kangaroo Island’s beaches.

Results confirmed that there are higher quantities of marine debris on south coast beaches, particularly Vivonne, Windmill and Flour Cask Bays, which act as sinks for marine debris drifting in from the southeast.

Barcodes from bottles and food wrappers were recorded and used to identify the exact source of rubbish items. As might be expected, the majority of rubbish collected originated from Australia (80 per cent), while 8 per cent of items came from Asia, 5 per cent from Europe and 3 per cent from the Americas.

Judge Wants EPA to Enforce Everglades Pollution Rules - U.S. District Judge Alan Gold frustrated by the repeated delays and “disingenuous” legal maneuvers by state lawmakers and agencies; will strip authority from the state to issue critical pollution discharge permits for the state’s $1.2 billion network of nutrient-scrubbing marshes and give it to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The EPA plan is calling for a 42,000 acre, $1.5 billion expansion of the state’s existing network of reservoirs and pollution treatment marshes, which are designed to absorb phosphorous that runs from sugar farms, cattle pastures, and suburban lawns.
