South West Marine Debris Monitoring Forms

These forms have been developed over the years so that they are very easy to fill out with the most common items at the top of the different material categories.  Why not download the forms and see what you can find on your local beach, Its likely to be a bit different to what we find, I suspect you would find a lot more domestic rubbish such as plastic bottles and food wrappers and way more cigarette butts.
