Makai Pier Beach Clean-up with Kamehameha Schools

B.E.A.C.H. organized a beach clean-up/educational presentation with high school students from Kamehameha Schools at Makai Research Pier on Wednesday October 17, 2007. Before the clean-up, B.E.A.C.H. gave an educational presentation on marine debris and solutions for preventing more trash from ending up in the ocean. This area along the bank is a problem spot for dumping of household appliances, construction rubble, take away food containers and wrappers, and other trash. B.E.A.C.H. has been monitoring this area for the last couple of months and are trying to keep it free of litter by doing clean-ups, talking to dive companies that cater to tourists, and making the locals aware that B.E.A.C.H. and other groups are trying to keep it clean.
