Each month’s webinar features experts on a topic related to abandoned and derelict vessels. The goal of the series is to share perspectives from across the country on common issues arising from abandoned and derelict vessels, in hopes to help communities better deal with them. The webinar speakers are specialists from federal, state, and local governments; nongovernmental organizations; universities; and industry, and will discuss topics about communications, funding, policy, and successes and challenges under blue skies and hurricane conditions.

Salvaging Solutions

We welcome attendance from anyone with an interest in abandoned and derelict vessels, particularly local, state, and federal agencies; tribal entities; nongovernmental organizations, and other organizations engaged in the issue.
