Marine Debris in the Mid Atlantic: Ongoing Efforts to Address a Global Challenge

June 30 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Our oceans are filled with items that do not belong there as consumer plastics, metals, rubber, paper, textiles, derelict fishing gear, vessels, and other lost or discarded items enter the marine environment every day. This marine debris is one of the most widespread pollution problems facing the world’s ocean and waterways, impacting people, ecosystems, and our economy. While the problem may seem large, it is important to remember that marine debris is preventable. Join speaker Katie Morgan to learn more about the issue of marine debris and what is being done at multiple scales to address this pervasive global issue.
