Cocos research blog

Blog post 1, 10 March 2017. #PlasticPollution research trip to the Cocos Keeling Islands starts today and runs until the 25th of March. The trip is supported by the Institute for Marine & Antarctic Studies (IMAS), as well numerous partner agencies, including the Tangaroa Blue Foundation & the Two Hands Project. Data collected (especially the painstakingly collected micro-plastic data from our 3-day expedition to remote, uninhabited North Keeling Island) will contribute to an IMAS-supported PhD research project scheduled to begin in spring 2017 (see the ‘Projects Available‘ page).
