Season 2 Episode 7: Alicia Buckle on the MIP's Local Scale Monitoring Program
Water quality monitoring can be done on lots of different scales. Great Barrier Reef monitoring is done on a catchment scale with the results reflecting what's happening over a very large area. While this is useful to give a big picture perspective on the reef it is less relevant to farmers and doesn't give them any information about what changes they need to be making on their particular paddocks. The Major Integrated Project is unique in that it provides local scale monitoring to farmers and then supports them to make changes.

Season 2 Episode 6: Ausmap Microplastics With Michelle Blewitt
Plastics are forever. Once released to the environment they break up into ever smaller pieces until they're no longer visible to the naked eye, but they never go away. Micro, nano and pico plastics are turning up at all corners of the planet and are accumulating in the food we eat, the water we drink and even the air we breathe. Michelle Blewitt explains the AusMAP project and why it's important for us to identify microplastics hotspots.
