Each Fall, volunteers throughout the world collect marine debris, including plastics, fishing lines and nets, and other human-made items, recording what they find. The information is then studied to identify sources of debris and to develop education and policy initiatives to help reduce it. WCT is coordinating the Wellfleet cleanup.
