Keepin' the Sea Free of Debris!

We Are Thankful for Our Partners


By: Marine Debris Program Staff

In honor of the Thanksgiving holiday, the NOAA Marine Debris Program is taking time to remember a few things for which we are thankful. One in particular is our partners, with their help we were able to make real progress in our efforts to address marine debris this year.

With our partners, the NOAA Marine Debris Program removed 247,188 pounds of debris

and reached over 12,628 students and 168 educators through education and outreach projects.

And with their help, we will continue to research, prevent, and reduce the impacts of marine debris.
Thank you!
