Another fabulous beach cleanup on Oahu's serenly beautiful and desolate North Shore.
Was treated to a magnificent sunset, saw multiple Hawaiian Monk Seals (the one pictured was enormous and was taken from far away with a very long zoom...it is critical to not disturb these extremely endangered (approx. just 1,400 left on Earth) mammals as even minor disturbances will cause them to skip an entire mating season (for example)), and cleaned up and hauled out several ghost nets and buckets of plastic.
Please carefully consider your choices as a consumer and realize that day after day I see firsthand the ravages of our lazy and overly convenience-oriented lifestyles, and its killing our oceans, and in turn, ourselves.
Please make an effort to support bans on single use plastics, buy and support local farmers and fisherman, and for goodness sake, grab a bucket and clean a beach!
