This octopus hitched a ride to the surface as park divers were removing marine debris. He was returned home after the divers took a moment to marvel at it.

Our waterways are littered with stuff that doesn't belong in them. Plastic bags, cigarette butts, fishing nets, sunken vessels, glass bottles, abandoned crab traps...the list is endless. Some of this marine debris comes from human activity at sea, and some of it makes its way into our waterways from land. Here are ten important things you should know about marine debris:

1. It doesn't stay put.
2. It comes in many forms.
3. It's your problem too.
4. NOAA is fighting this problem.
5. Some debris is being turned into energy.
6. Marine debris can hurt or kill animals.
7. Most debris items take a long time to degrade in the environment.
8. You can help us get the word out! Visit marinedebris.noaa.gov/resources
9. This is a global problem.
10. Small steps lead to big results. #30DaysofOcean #MarineDebris

Is this yours? It was left at the visitor center on May 30. It's brand new (these are the only stamps in the book) so its ready for many more national park memories! (PS - Travelers: Don't forget that there is a space on the inside cover to put your name and address so we can contact you when you leave the book on the stamping table!) #nationalpark #nationalparkpassport #lost #brandnew #writeyourname #keepbiscaynebeautiful #yesitsourbirthday
