Cleaning the beach on the North Shore of Oahu at Kahuku Point.
Got to see the newly born baby Hawaiian Monk Seal and was glad to see signage up to keep people back. It is critical to do everything possible not to disturb these critically endangered animals under any circumstances!
Got in a quick beach cleanup between work today with these two total legends!
Onshore winds are bringing in a ton of microplastic and plenty of man o'war!
Watch out folks!
If you havent already, please write to your Representatives and express your support for bans on unnecessary single use plastics, stop consuming straws, plastic utentils, and plastic bottled water.
While so many cities, states, and even nations are making strides its still not enough.
We need to accomplish more and we need to do so at a faster rate.
After some beach cleanups we like to trace objects back to their source to get a better sense for the flow of plastics across the ocean and out of plain old curiosity.
Did you know that most plastic washing up on Hawaii's shores takes an average of 5 to 7 years to reach us?
In this case, this plastic container traveled 4.279 miles from Guatemala having been produced at Plastimax and being sold under the Malher spice company label.
