All of our partners have their specialties and interests when it comes to trash related issues. In 2017 members decided to form working groups to focus on specific pathways towards marine debris reduction.
The working groups are comprised of members that are already engaged in an activity or are interested in promoting/ developing a strategy for the partnership. Members are encouraged to participate in any or all groups if they wish. Interested partners should email for further information on joining a working group.
During the May 2018 meeting we will develop targets and first steps for the three groups. Designated lead contacts will be listed on each working group sub-page.
Communication Strategy Working Group
This group will focus on communication strategies for the Action Plan.
Research Strategy Working Group
Focused on promoting research related to marine debris in the Houston-Galveston Area.
Removal Strategy Working Group
Removal is still a huge part of marine debris control. This group will assist with coordination on clean up efforts and new technology.
