DLIST-Benguela Newsletter No.1 - Marine Litter
Marine litter is a problem worldwide and our Benguela coastline is no exception. Litter has serious impacts on marine life and coastal communities. Yet marine litter is more than an environmental problem that needs to be addressed by action plans and legislations. It is also a cultural problem, thus calling for changes in behaviour. That was the goal of a recent pilot project aimed at showing schools and communities what the problem of marine litter is and how they can be part of the solution.
