Keepin' the Sea Free of Debris!

Through the Years with the NOAA Marine Debris Program

2 Comments

In case you missed it, this year, the NOAA Marine Debris Program is celebrating our 10-year anniversary! Ten years ago, our program was authorized by the passing of the Marine Debris Research, Prevention, and Reduction Act (renamed “The Marine Debris Act” in 2012). A lot has happened since then. Take a look below at some of the NOAA Marine Debris Program’s highlights from the past decade.

For more on our 10-year anniversary, stay tuned to our website (here) and blog (you’re already here) throughout the year. You can also find a PDF version of the below timeline here.

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.
