The use of interactive maps made by Alannah Biega (@alannahbiega, an alumni of the Crawford Lab) is  highlighting the top items collected from Canadian shores (https://arcg.is/1ee0ib) while also showing odd items (https://arcg.is/m1TDr). Helping your closest shoreline clean up group could lead you to finding an unopened bottle of champagne, a rubber chicken, or even money!
