​Free Marine Debris Monitoring Toolkit for Educators

Marine debris is a growing environmental issue that negatively affects our ocean on a global scale.  In response, the NOAA Marine Debris Program and the Office of National Marine Sanctuaries have developed the Marine Debris Toolkit. ​This is ​one tool in helping the next generation understand and reduce the impacts of marine debris.

It guides students and teachers in hands-on scientific monitoring, targeted education, community outreach and empowers students to become ocean stewards by taking actio​n against marine debris on campus, in their local community, and at home.​ ​
