The "Plastic Pirates" are a citizen science project to research litter pollution in German rivers. Throughout Germany, young people are integrated into the scientific research process by collecting data on litter pollution at rivers. The data is then analyzed by scientists and published in scientific journals.

The Plastic Pirates project has already produced comprehensive findings on the nationwide abundance and composition of litter pollution in German rivers.
