TOGETHER WE MAKE THE DIFFERENCE

The dedication of organizations throughout the country, in recovering and monitoring marine litter from Portugal's coastline to its waterways, has an impact that goes beyond the work of just each individual organization.
Together they play an essential role in protecting the ocean.

Bringing together the results of the national organizations working to collect and monitor marine litter in the “Marine Litter Counter” shows us the impact we can achieve together. While the figures presented are just a sample of the total marine litter already collected in Portugal, it reflects the commitment of the organizations and volunteers who regularly dedicate their time to protecting the ocean.


Celebrating International Coastal Cleanup Day
