Anne Mäusbacher – A few years ago, when I told people about my initiative, Beach Cleaner, I was often asked ‘What was the point of the programme?’ Being based in Nuremberg, Germany, we weren’t exactly near the ocean and people would say, ‘We don’t live by the sea, so what’s the ocean got to do with conservation?’ I wanted to change that perception.
Anne Mäusbacher is the founder of Beach Cleaner. The initiative was launched in 2015 in the fight against ocean plastic pollution and the mission to live plastic free in everyday family life. She lives with her family in Nuremberg and prefers to spend her time by the water. It goes without question she wants to protect it as well.

Emily Landis is the Wetlands Strategy Lead at The Nature Conservancy’s World Office. Emily supports the global restoration and protection of coastal wetlands, conserving the lands and waters on which all life depends.
