Citizen Science: Marine Debris Program

This resource helps educators teach about marine debris and involve their students in research and outreach. Students can conduct marine debris surveys, enter their data into NOAA’s database, analyze monitoring results, and become involved in marine debris stewardship within their communities.The comprehensive teacher toolkit (downloadable in link) includes lesson plans, educational articles, videos, websites, tutorials and powerpoint presentations.

If the MDMAP sounds like too much of a commitment, download and use the Marine Debris Tracker App to easily report marine debris sightings at any time from your smart phone.
