Junior Rangers: Help with beach clean up at Lagun

January 27


Saturday morning, January 27 from 9am to 11 am, STINAPA together with the Junior Rangers will have beach clean up at Lagun. We need all the help we can get.

It’s about a month ago that there was a huge invasion of sargassum weed at east coast and also at Lagun. A lot of effort was made to get rid of the sargassum at lagun before it started to decompose. When sargassum starts to decompose it takes away all the oxygen in the water with the consequense that sea creatures start to die. A lot of baby turtles, lobsters and fish were killed during this period last month.

This week, during the STINAPA outdoord schoolactivities at Lagun, a lot of patches of sargassum were seen continiously drifting into the bay with the waves.

This Saturday STINAPA and the Junior Rangers will have another clean up at Lagun and need your help. We need help from someone with a small boat and net to help drag the seaweed to the coast. People with shovels rakes and wheelbarrels are very welcome to help get rid of the seaweed in the water and along the coast.

We will appreciate all the help we can get at Lagun this Saturday from 9am to 11 am.
