This message from the sea is not in a bottle. It is found on and in whales, turtles, birds, fish and other wildlife. The message being shouted at us is that we must do something about the tidal wave of plastic waste that is killing and endangering marine life and damaging the water resources so necessary for our own survival.

Read more about the impact of marine debris and the International Coastal Cleanup volunteer effort to collect and document trash each year to keep it out of the ocean and address this serious problem. And read about the Neighborhood Art House Environmental Detectives NOAA B-WET stewardship project to keep trash out of the waterways. You can also find out how you can volunteer locally for the 2013 International Coastal Cleanup.
