Marine Debris Program Joins Partners for Seabin Announcement

JULY 18, 2022 — On July 9, 2022, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Marine Debris Program staff joined Congressman Brian Higgins, Buffalo Niagara Waterkeeper, Council of the Great Lakes Region, and New York State Parks at Buffalo Harbor State Park to announce the deployment of Seabin technology in their marina.

Funded by a grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Marine Debris Program to the council on behalf of the Great Lakes Plastic Cleanup, the devices will complement Waterkeeper’s existing on-land and on-water cleanups, while allowing the organization to collect important data on the types of debris trapped and to engage volunteers in marine debris solutions.
