First Hawai‘i Marine Debris Action Plan

Leave a comment

NOAA, in partnership with elected officials, academic, private, and non-profit organizations and industry members from across the state, will “roll-out” the Hawai‘i Marine Debris Action Plan – the nation’s first comprehensive, statewide action plan to address marine debris on Tuesday, January 12, 2010 in Honolulu, HI. For the last two years, numerous governmental, non-governmental, academic, industry, and private business partners from across the state worked alongside the NOAA Marine Debris Program to develop the Hawaii Marine Debris Action Plan. This plan builds upon significant ongoing and past marine debris community efforts, establishes a comprehensive and cooperative framework for marine debris activities and projects across the state and aims to reduce the environmental, economic, and human health and safety impacts of marine debris.  Read more about this program here: http://marinedebris.noaa.gov/projects/himdap.html
