Marine Debris Program Proudly Presents Hawai’i Marine Debris Action Plan 2010-2020 Accomplishments Report

OCTOBER 25, 2021 ─ On October 21, the Marine Debris Program released the Hawai‘i Marine Debris Action Plan 2010-2020 Accomplishments Report. The Hawai‘i Marine Debris Action Plan was the first community-based marine debris action plan in the nation.

Established in 2010 and updated four times, it is a comprehensive framework for strategic action to reduce the ecological, health and safety, and economic impacts of marine debris in Hawai‘i by 2020. Over the ten years of the plan, partnerships and participation have increased, and together this steadfast community has made huge strides in understanding and mitigating marine debris in the islands. 

This document provides a history of the Hawai‘i Marine Debris Action Plan and celebrates the accomplishments of the community. The NOAA Marine Debris Program recognizes and thanks these partners whose on-the-ground work has carried and matured the Hawai‘i Marine Debris Action Plan during the past 10 years.
