The goal of our April beach cleanups was to help rid Juno Beach of litter by volunteering with the Blue Friend's Society program at the Loggerhead Marinelife Center. For three weekend sessions, we took a group of volunteers to scour the beach for any trash. We volunteered for a total of 56 hours between everyone who signed up with us.
We also had the opportunity to visit the Loggerhead Marinelife Center and learn a little more about ocean and sea turtle conservation. Sea turtles and other sea animals can mistake litter for food, which may cause them to have digestive issues. Thus, it is important that we keep our shores clean in order to prevent harm to the environment.
We had a great time cleaning the beach in honor of Earth Month and are looking forward to doing it again in the future. Thank you to those that volunteered with us, and thank you to the Loggerhead Marinelife Center for providing us with equipment!
