Volunteer with the Ucluelet Aquarium - Microplastic Survey

Join this very important citizen science research study led by the Ucluelet Aquarium!

Everyone is welcome to look into the state of microplastics on our local beaches. Spend a few hours helping out and leave with a better understanding of microplastics and their potential impact on the environment.

Interested volunteers with any questions can email Britt in advance at: marinedebris@uclueletaquarium.org

This survey will take place in light rain or sunshine so dress for the weather! And always bring rainboots for retrieving water from the shallow ocean (part of the survey process).

The Ucluelet Aquarium is a unique catch and release facility which provides an up close and personal encounter with a diversity of fish and invertebrates from the local waters of Barkley and Clayoquot Sounds. Their mission is to raise awareness about local marine biodiversity and promote respect for the ocean environment.
