Actions Plans Header
Regional action plans are coordinated efforts for partners to strategically address marine debris. Due to the complexity of marine debris issues, there is a role for everyone in the implementation of a plan, including the private citizen who picks up litter from our beaches and watersheds as well as governments, industries, non-governmental organizations, and academic institutions that support a wide range of activities like cleanups, research, education, and outreach. Initial discussions on action plans are in progress throughout the Pacific U.S. Territories.The Hawaii Marine Debris Action Plan documents are available for download below.
