Marine debris is choking our oceans, creating a devastating impact on marine ecosystems world-wide.
Marine debris is harmful to marine life and can have catastrophic and often fatal results. It can cause injury or death through drowning, entanglement or starvation following ingestion.
Large percentages of fish now contain man made debris plastic or fibrous material, which absorbs toxins that consumers of seafood digest.
Birds, sharks, turtles, dolphins and whales are the innocent victims of marine debris. The World Economic Forum stated in January 2016 that there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean by 2050.
We can’t do this alone. Join us to protect and conserve our marine environment, preventing and removing the unprecedented amount of marine debris entering our oceans and waterways.
