NOAA has a new educational section of its website created to inform the public on general information about marine debris, including its sources, impacts and solutions. NOAA has worked with its partners to create an Internet-based educational campaign for marine debris awareness and prevention located on the homepage of the NOAA Marine Debris Program website. Products, tailored to specific audiences such as beachgoers, fishermen, boaters, and students, include an expanded photo database for use by the general public as well as a fun Children’s Activity Book. There is also a section designed especially for educators, with a curriculum designed for students K-12.
