Coastal Cleanup Follow Up with the Ocean Conservancy - Webinar
Friday, October 25, 2013
11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT
The ocean sustains us with the basic elements of life—it produces half of the oxygen in the air we breathe, and it is an essential part of the water cycle, helping to provide the water we drink. The world’s beaches, the frontier of this essential resource, support ocean health. They provide habitat and nesting grounds for important ocean wildlife like sea turtles and sea birds, and they attract vacationers from around the world, helping to sustain complex coastal economies.
This webinar will serve as a follow up to the Coastal Cleanup that SPC members conducted while in St. Petersburg, Florida. It will include a general discussion about one of the most ubiquitous issues facing our marine environment, ocean trash, the relationship of ocean trash to packaging, and an overview of the successes and impacts of the past week’s Cleanup.
