Project AWARE's Tough New York City Marathon Team are fundraising for a global challenge in support of Project AWARE’s targeted marine debris work. Pollution is the one of the overarching stressors currently impacting the health of our ocean and it affects us all. Marine debris is currently one of the biggest sources of pollution and it’s believed that over 800 different species have been impacted by marine debris through ingestion or entanglement.
To tackle the issue we are working at a national, multinational and international level in order to:
· Share the underwater impacts of pollution through data collection and reporting to influence policy
· Reduce the amount of pollution in the ocean
· Save marine life from the detrimental impacts of pollution
Thank you for taking action to realize the vision of a clean and healthy ocean.
