Live from Honolulu, it’s the 5th International Marine Debris Conference!

This week I’m at the 5th International Marine Debris Conference in Honolulu, HI. (Oh, the things I do for science!) From the conference website:

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the United Nations Environment Programme are co-organizers of the conference, which will bring together international marine debris researchers, natural resource managers, policy makers, industry representatives, and the nongovernmental community. This conference will highlight research advances, allow sharing of strategies and best practices to assess, reduce, and prevent the impacts of marine debris, and provide an opportunity for the development of specific bilateral or multi-country strategies.

I’ll be tweeting from the conference under the SEAPLEX account, @seaplexscience. You can follow along with me and other conference tweeters at the hashtag #5IMDC.
