February Marine Debris

Now that February has come to an end, it’s time for another marine debris update. As of today we have collected 3,513 photos! We would love to see that number reach 5,000 so please keep your photos coming. As a reminder, please include your photo ruler in each photo and only include one piece of debris per photo. These photos are very important for helping us classify the different attributes of marine debris found on the beach. With spring just around the corner and beached birds becoming a little less frequent, now is a great time to document debris. Here are just a few of the many photos we have received recently:

A tooth brush found in North Oregon

An electronic device found on the South Coast of Washington

A drift buoy found on the North Coast of Washington

A small refrigerator door found in Oregon
