Marine Debris and Plastics Program

Marine plastic pollution represents one of the greatest threats to our world’s ocean.  It is a global problem affecting every coast and ocean in the world. It affects everything from the environment to the economy; from fishing and navigation to human health and safety; from the tiniest coral polyps to giant blue whales.

We at the Center for Coastal Studies are engaged in studying, removing and educating about marine plastic pollution in a number of different ways.  From beach cleanups and monitoring, to derelict fishing gear retrieval and student art projects, the Center is the leader on Cape Cod addressing this issue.
