Reserva Marina Tres Palmas Cleanup

February 4th, 2009

Offshore work day #8

Today a group of 3 volunteers helped clean the reserve; Marissa Feddema, Nate Clark, and Freyda Zell. We enjoyed the smooth glassy sea state, the warmth of the Caribbean sun, and the clear blue waters. After the volunteers 'tow-boarded' until their hearts were content we got to work. We found 4 more tires bringing the season to a total of 108! In addition to the tires, we extracted a mass of metal rebar from the reef, plastic bottles, 2X4's, clothing, and pvc pipe. Once again, thanks so much for volunteering your time to help beautify the reefs of Rincón!
