“NAMEPA is honored to be teaming up with the America’s Cup Healthy Ocean Project,” stated Ms. Lyden-Kluss.  “Our partnership with the United States Coast Guard in disseminating information on marine debris makes this collaboration a natural outgrowth of our efforts.  We admire and respect the America’s Cup organization’s commitment to marine environment education, and applaud their efforts to “Save our Seas”.
