Blue Resource Littering Photo Campaign

Inland, coastal, and marine water resources globally, including Ghana, are challenged by a myriad of anthropogenic activities, and notable among them is the problem of littering (e.g., plastics, etc.). The situation is a problem because these ecosystems are considered receptacles for all forms of waste from human settlements within their catchment areas.

In light of the above, BlueRRP Institute, as part of its mandate to bring to the fore the state of these ecosystems for sustainable management, is documenting the problem of littering in Inland, coastal, and marine water resources via photoshoots. Ghana has several aquatic ecosystems that have been subjected to this treatment with authorities overwhelmed with the problem. The litter pose threats to the several aquatic organisms that reside or transit in these ecosystems.


The BlueRRP Institute is using photography to advocate for change in behavior towards Inland, coastal, and marine ecosystems by highlighting all the kinds of litter found in these ecosystems and the loss in aesthetic value. The project would also highlight the activities of litter collectors and project the activities for more support.

The Characteristics of Litter

The litter commonly found within and in the catchment areas of rivers, lagoons, estuaries, and beaches includes plastic and glass bottles, styrofoam, used bags (e.g., school and groceries), microplastics, and plant materials, among others. We encountered some plastic bottle collectors, especially at the beach.
