Reserva Marina Tres Palmas Cleanup

January 30th, 2009

Offshore work day #7

Today after departing the marina, the two volunteers Dave Wrubel and Roger Wagner were eager to get into the water. Their eagerness was apparent because of the days perfect conditions; great visibility, light trade winds, and plentiful sunshine. Immediately into tow-boarding we ran across some cable and metal that we previously marked. After removing that debris we continued to tow-board around the reserve admiring it's beauty. Then, we monitored the reef from Marias south and extracted 3 tires off of Dogman's reef. We ended the day scanning the northern nearshore tier of the reserve and extracted a large fiberglass hull from a Dominican boat, a couple more tires, and additional trash. Thanks for your help!
