It’s that time of year again—time to join together and fight marine debris at the International Coastal Cleanup (ICC)! This annual event, put on by the Ocean Conservancy and supported by the NOAA Marine Debris Program (MDP), brings people together from across the globe to clean up marine debris in their local communities. Last year’s cleanup resulted in more than 18 million pounds of trash collected by almost 800,000 volunteers!
MDP staff will be participating at locations throughout the country—which location will you be at? Find a location and sign up to clean up today! The 2016 International Coastal Cleanup is Saturday, September 17th—we’ll see you there!
