The federation collects marine debris in Brunswick County

Many coastal property owners have a hurricane plan for their family and home, but yards, docks, boats, and construction sites are often forgotten or overlooked. Unsecured boats, water toys, yard furniture, and construction equipment can be damaged – or even blown or washed away – during hurricane events. When unsecured objects enter our waterways, they become marine debris – which pollutes the water and harms marine life.
