Bonaire Ta ON! Sargassum clean up continues at Foodies

The huge effort that has been ongoing to clear the shoreline from Sargassum in front of the operators at Sorobon has been successful. The area is looking much better and a lot of sargassum has been removed from in front of the resorts and surf schools there.

The focus is now re-directed to 2 other area’s, the area in front of Foodies and Lagun. All volunteers are asked to go to Foodies in the morning, where there is still a lot of sargassum to be removed.

All day today and all day tomorrow, STINAPA, OLB, RCN and volunteers will continue to clean up at Foodies and Lagun. BonDoet is on Friday and Saturday and some of the registered projects have decided with their volunteers to join in the sargassum clean up, for which we are very grateful!
A lot more help is needed so please show up with watershoes/booties, gloves, rakes and shovels if you have it. Equipment such as rakes, gloves, shovels, snacks and drinks are also made available to volunteers. People with shovels rakes and wheelbarrows are very welcome to help get rid of the seaweed in the water and along the coast.
