Cleaning up

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Steve put together a short film (watch it here) that gives some idea of the beach we helped clean last weekend. This little pocket beach south of Portage Head was choked with debris of all kinds and the efforts of a dedicated group of volunteers from the sanctuary and the Coast Guard helped to make it a little better by the time we left. There is still a long way to go but this is a process, and we have begun.

    Nice to see this day captured on film. I shared with the Coast Guard base commander so she could get her crew to watch, relive the experience and feel rewarded for their efforts.

    I did a quick check and found EMS litters are $1500 or more, so your improvised rig was a great, economical alternative.

    best wishes
