By: Nancy Wallace, Director of the NOAA Marine Debris Program

Marine debris is a pervasive problem that threatens our oceans and coastal environments. Since the inception of the NOAA Marine Debris Program in 2006, we have strived to combat this issue by finding solutions through research, removal and prevention efforts. We have had many accomplishments during this time, including funding important and innovative research projects, removing a significant amount of coastal debris, and reaching thousands of students, teachers, and communities to bring the issue of marine debris to the forefront.

There is still a long way to go to solve this problem and we need to be strategic about our future priorities. We will continue to take action to help protect our important natural resources. I am excited to announce that the NOAA Marine Debris Program has developed a new strategic plan to lead us into the future and help us succeed in continuing to combat marine debris in the coming years.

The NOAA Marine Program is happy to announce the release of its 2016-2020 Strategic Plan.

The NOAA Marine Debris Program envisions the global ocean and its coasts, users, and inhabitants free from the impacts of marine debris. Our mission is to investigate and solve the problems that stem from marine debris, in order to protect and conserve our nation's marine environment, natural resources, industries, economy, and people.
