Kathryn Youngblood | Tracking Marine Debris

Debris Tracker is a global citizen science tool used to monitor and record litter in an open-access database. Every day, educational, non-profit, and scientific organizations and dedicated citizen scientists from all around the world record data on inland and marine debris with the app, resulting in over 2.5 million items tracked to date. As a Research Engineer at the University of Georgia New Materials Institute and the Citizen Science Director of Marine Debris Tracker, Kathryn Youngblood has worked with the Jambeck Research Group for over five years studying upstream solutions to ocean plastic pollution. In 2019, she traveled along the Ganges river as a member of National Geographic's Sea to Source expedition, using Debris Tracker to study the litter leakage of plastic waste in 10 communities along the river. You can start your own citizen science litter expedition today by downloading the free Marine Debris Tracker app!
