Tropical Islands Partnering on Solutions for Marine Debris Webinar Series

Marine Debris is a problem around the world, and tropical islands are no exception. These island communities often face different challenges, such as limited disposal options, and increased storm activity. Tropical Islands Partnering on Solutions for Marine Debris (TIPS) is a bimonthly online webinar series hosted by the NOAA Marine Debris Program. The goal of the TIPS series is to help tropical island communities connect and share perspectives from across the tropics on common marine debris issues and proposed solutions. Each webinar features stakeholders from federal, state, and local government, nongovernmental organizations, academia, and industry to discuss topics about outreach and education, policy, debris management, and successes, as well as overcoming challenges under normal and storm conditions.
