Marine Debris Solutions Student Art Project

The Marine Debris Solutions Student Art Project is a project of the Beach Environmental Awareness Campaign Hawai`i (B.E.A.C.H.). The purpose of the project is to increase awareness in the community of solutions to reduce and prevent marine debris and to inspire change and action.


Volunteers from Beach Environmental Awareness Campaign Hawai`i educated students about marine debris impacts and solutions through powerpoint presentations, discussions and hands on learning with marine debris from the Great Pacific Garbage Patch which was removed by B.E.A.C.H. volunteers from the Kahuku coastline, Kamilo Beach (on the island of Hawai`i), Makapu`u Beach, the Keomoku coastline of Lana`i, Hanauma Bay and many others.

The students then created paintings and drawings of their ideas of solutions to the various types of marine debris to share with the community through displays in public venues.

Artwork from this project is currently on display at the Hawai`i State Library from Friday 9th November to Saturday 8th December, 2012.
