Making a difference…

2014_07_23_compositeIn the past three months we’ve put focus on the  Department of Environmental Management State Park Kings Beach Fishing Area in partnership with groups from Chile, Boston and China. Solving the problem of marine debris on our shoreline is complex, but one of our solutions is to engage people in taking good care of the environment, inspire them to make changes, sharing the message back home and collecting metrics on the impact of our work. Excluding a one-time fishing net, it is clear that by focusing on a specific area, with a clear plan of attack, that we can make a difference. The next 4 weeks are quite busy on Ocean Drive, but we’ll head back out in about a month and see if the debris flux reduces further or if we reach a steady state. A big thank you to all the leaders, volunteers, state park rangers, … everyone!
