Such an amazing morning spent leading a beach cleanup for 3rd-5th graders from Koko Head Elementary School with Kalei and Hawaii Ocean Ambassadors!
The students have been learning about plastic pollution in the ocean, and today it was time to get them out in the field! And let me tell you, these keiki totally blew us away with their energy, curiosity, and hard work!
Really gives one hope for the future of humanity to see how great this next generation is going to be.
North Shore, Oahu - Beach Cleanup
A nice low key Sunday beach cleanup on the North Shore of Oahu.
Plastic straws, eel traps, nets and ropes, compacted trash from ships, and oyster spacers were in abundance. We also found an almost shocking amount of styrofoam.
We have to start doing better at limiting our consumption of single use plastics and styrofoam. Immediately, if not sooner.
Got the awesome opportunity to do a beach cleanup on the Marine Corps base yesterday at KBay!
North Beach gets hit with a lot of ocean plastic, commercial fishing related nets and ropes, and other marine debris. You could say that this beach is pretty much on the front lines of trash warfare.
I've been wanting to get on base to finally observe and clean at this location for a number of years and was elated to finally get the chance. North Beach is beautiful, waves were big, and got to hang with some truly world class guys!
Grab a bucket and a buddy, get after it, and do a cleanup of your own - wherever you are!
