If you’re a beach cleanup aficionado and passionate about ridding the oceans of marine debris, the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is seeking your input.
NOAA is in the process of drafting its next five-year Marine Debris Strategic Plan, and is calling for comments to inform the plan’s development.
“The Marine Debris Act establishes the NOAA Marine Debris Program as the federal lead to coordinate and implement marine debris efforts in the United States. The Program does this by working with partners at the federal, state, local, and international levels.”
Consequently, the deadline to submit comments is August 16th, 2019.
