As a program, we have been investigating the problem of garbage on the beaches of Chile for 14 years and four years in 10 more countries in Latin America. In addition, our work involves the participation of teachers and students in the sampling work, having citizen science as a fundamental pillar. One of MINKE’s objectives is to involve civil society in this work. In that sense, we believe that we are a significant contribution, says Nelson Vázquez, co-founder of Científicos de la Basura.
