Oil and Beach Clean Up at Lagun
June 17, 2017@8:00 am-11:00 amFree
Lagun is a STINAPA Junior Ranger adopted beach and they come here monthly to clean the beach. Turtles sometimes use it for a nesting site. So this is an important and beautiful piece of Bonaire we need to keep clean!
The little cap of a bottle, the wrapping paper of a piece of candy, a discarded cigaret butt all this seems like nothing but gathering all of this together will have a dramatic effect.
Trash on our coasts and in our oceans creates huge problems. Not only for our health and local economy, but also the health of the creatures that live in these eco-systems.
Every day, again and again, large amounts of plastic wash ashore and give the impression that the people of Bonaire just dump their trash anywhere. However, most of the trash on the coast drifts to our coast with ocean currents from countries in the region or from very far away like Africa.
Join the Junior Rangers in keeping their adopted beach clean!
