Kathryn Youngblood | Tracking Plastic in the Ocean

Kathryn is a research engineer at the Circularity Informatics Lab at the University of Georgia, where she works with communities around the world on upstream solutions to plastic pollution. She is also the director for the Debris Tracker app, a citizen science app creating a global open database of inland and coastal litter. To date, Debris Tracker users have collected data on over 4 million litter items in more than 90 countries around the world. The citizen science litter data collected using Debris Tracker constructs a powerful scientific and educational map to spread awareness on the issue of plastic pollution and inform local solutions. Recently, Debris Tracker was used to collect data on more than 75,000 litter items along the Mississippi River, connecting ocean conservation and upstream communities.
