Report Marine Debris

Use this form if you found marine debris you cannot remove by yourself that is:

1) drifting in State waters or washed up on the shoreline,

2) removed from the water and is secured on land, or

3) so large or heavy that you need DLNR’s help to remove it.

 

Please note: information you submit through this form is shared between divisions within DLNR, researchers at the University of Hawaii, NOAA, Non-Government Organizations and other agencies that manage marine debris and Aquatic Invasive Species.  Your contact information is kept confidential.
