What is your motivation to involve in the project?
The main motivation is to raise awareness and work against the pollution. Since our work is focused in prevention and monitoring of litter along the sea shore and river banks this project is perfect fusion of all above mentioned.

Why is citizen science important for Slovenia?
Involvement of citizens in science is an important step towards collective science. The practice of public participation and collaboration in scientific research will increase scientific knowledge.

What is your biggest wish for the future?
Our biggest wish for the future would be that people would have a responsibility towards nature and the environment around them. Plastic pollution should be just a thing from the past. Also a big wish would be, that plastic could be a material that would be avoided by producers.
