2012 will mark the 27th year for the annual International Coastal Cleanup put on by Ocean Conservancy, and for the past seven years, the NOAA Marine Debris Program has helped fund this effort.  Volunteers in more than 96 participating countries will head out to clean up their local beaches, waterways, and even neighborhoods. Over the past 26 years, more than 9 million volunteers have removed 153,790,918 pounds of trash!
