Offshore work day #6

Today was another beautiful day to be in the water helping to clean the reserve. Two volunteers came out to help us in this community coral reef restortation effort; Lisa Murdock, and Angel 'Doctor' Rodriguez of Arecibo. After tow-boarding around the marine reserve we got to work. We filled a bag full of plastic debris, small parts of boats, and cans, then extracted four tires. One tire was removed just off steps, and the remaining three were removed near dogmans. Our cleaning efforts our being expanded to neighboring areas of the reserve (i.e. north to El faro, and south to the balneario). Today the volunteers and I monitored the reef from Casa China to Dogmans. Thanks for your help!
