Citizens may Report Improperly Discarded Plastic and other Debris using a Mobile Phone App

Citizens who witness improperly discarded plastics and other debris on shorelines and in the water may take a photo and share it with others using a mobile phone app, the Marine Debris Tracker. The photos are intended to help other citizens and scientists around the world gather data on marine debris and help track marine debris movement back to the source. In support of the Debris Tracker citizen scientist effort, on November 13, 2019, Morgan Stanley, National Geographic Society and the University of Georgia announced a partnership to scale and enhance the marine debris tracker movement. Through the partnership the Marine Debris Tracker will receive support for 10 years of development and growth in the marine plastic solutions space.
