Why Teach About Marine Debris?

Leave a comment

Marine debris is an everyday problem that anyone can help to solve.  The NOAA Marine Debris Program offers numerous educational resources to teach students about the sources, impacts, and solutions to marine debris.  To learn more about the Marine Debris Program’s educational resources, check out this blog by the Marine Debris Program’s Anna Manyak, posted on the Chesapeake Bay Program’s Bay Backpack website on October 9th.

We all live in a watershed where everything runs downhill.  No matter where you live, the trash that you see on the streets can pass through a storm drain, head to the Chesapeake Bay, and eventually reach the ocean, where it becomes marine debris.  The best way to combat marine debris is to share knowledge about where it comes from, how it impacts the environment, and what anyone can do to prevent it.
