Saturday, April 24th Makapu'u Beach Park Cleanup

To celebrate Earth Day, Clean Reefs hosted a beach clean up at Makapu’u Beach Park on Oahu, Hawaii. We found both large and small plastic debris scattered around the shoreline and in the surrounding rocks. Makapu’u Beach Park is greatly affected not only by microplastics, beach trash and cigarette butts, but there is also an incredible amount of discarded fishing gear which get caught in the current and the current then brings the debris on shore. We have hosted many clean ups there before and unfortunately, this beach park always needs a helping hand to keep it’s beach clean.
