Marine Debris Surveys

Marine debris poses serious risks to the both environment and marine creatures.


The interactive hands-on “Marine Debris” program involves participants conducting a shoreline marine debris survey on Wassaw Island. Participants collect, sort and identify the types of marine debris along a designated area of shoreline.

The data is then submitted to the Southeast Marine Debris Initiative database to help track the location of marine debris deposition and accumulation rates along the coast of Georgia.
