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

This year has been a busy one for the NOAA Marine Debris Program, and it was particularly special, as 2016 marked our ten-year anniversary. Looking back on the last decade, I am proud of what we have been able to accomplish and how much we’ve grown both in size and impact. This past year also marked the first under our most recent Strategic Plan. Following this ambitious guide, we have worked toward making our vision— an end to marine debris— a reality.

I am proud of the Program’s achievements to address marine debris and although we still have a lot of work to do, I am confident in our direction for the future, learning from the past decade of excellent marine debris work. With that, I am pleased to present the NOAA Marine Debris Program’s 2016 Accomplishments Report, which highlights some of our major accomplishments over the past fiscal year.
