The network is the first to unite a growing community of researchers, educators, industry, media and governments to find solutions to Africa’s marine waste issues.
How can you make a difference? Learn about marine waste, where it comes from and how small changes can make a big difference.

“Our mission is to create awareness to plastic pollution – one nautical mile at a time”
SUSTAINABLE SEAS TRUST and YACHT BOAZ is a joint collaboration. Boaz will be used as a platform to attract attention to the mission, and will visit ports along South African coasts and invite schools to become involved.
Networking depends on people and organizations working together. Terrific support from individuals and organizations, giving generously of their time and expertise, has helped shape this project and its capacity to meet the huge challenges of litter, waste, and pollution in Africa. Those who have contributed at the workshops and on Skype and through other forms of communication are sincerely thanked for their contributions.
