Hundreds of thousands of people all over the world help each year to rid the environment of marine debris and collect detailed information on the types and quantities of refuse they find. This information is recorded on data cards and forwarded to the Center for Marine Conservation, which compiles data for all cleanups around the world. This information helps identify the source of the debris and focus efforts on eliminating or reducing it.
