Staying Connected through the Southeast Marine Debris Collaborative Portal
NOVEMBER 16, 2020 — On October 22, the Southeast and Great Lakes Regional Coordinators for the NOAA Marine Debris Program teamed up to host a virtual training on using the Southeast Marine Debris Collaborative Portal. This online portal allows visitors to view marine debris-related resources and information such as projects, cleanups, funding opportunities, and events for Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina.
Additionally, the site has a private (log-in only) component for document sharing, communicating with other users via message boards, adding public and non-public events, and more. About 25 Southeast partners attended the training and hope to start collaborating using the site soon.
