NC Marine Debris Symposium Goes Virtual

The eighth annual North Carolina Marine Debris Symposium Feb. 10-12 is going virtual and global.

Coastal Carolina Riverwatch is hosting the online symposium that offers a chance to collaborate, network and learn about marine debris research, policy, advocacy and more.

During the symposium, there will be a Global Circular Based Solutions Panel with Bonnie Monteleone of Plastic Ocean Project, Nina Butler with More Recycling and Scott Farling of Ocean Plastics Recovery Project, as well as discuss a bag ban versus a fee, and time to pitch ideas and unfunded projects that will be shared with potential funders and collaborators.

The full agenda is available online as well as a place to register and pay the $35 fee for nonmembers or $25 for members to attend.

Every attendee this year to the symposium will receive a complimentary one year membership to Coastal Carolina Riverwatch.
