The five-year plan, meant to reduce the impacts of marine debris by increasing understanding of the problem, taking preventative actions, and collaborating with diverse partners on solutions, is currently at the mid-way point. Over 30 stakeholders, representing nonprofit organizations, state agencies, academic institutions, and more, worked to review all actions, update any that may be out of date, and invite new partners to the table.

The draft updates will now undergo a thorough review by the group, who will continue regular check-ins to measure progress and find new ways to collaborate.
