Trash Free Seas®

Ocean trash affects the health of wildlife, people and local economies. Trash in the water and on the shore can be mistaken as food by wildlife, or entangle animals with lethal consequences.

Get Involved

Plastics now pollute all dimensions of our oceans from the sea surface to the seafloor, on remote beaches and in Arctic sea ice.

Nicholas Mallos, Director, Trash Free Seas® Program

Ocean Conservancy is working with you to protect the ocean from today’s greatest global challenges.

Together, we create science-based solutions for a healthy ocean and the wildlife and communities that depend on it.
