Net Patrol Follow Up

by Bill Hickman

The Surfrider Foundation Kauai Chapter has taken the unofficial lead in Rise Above Plastics Month efforts with their Net Send Off Party.  The event was a culmination of hard work done primarily by volunteers that stockpiled 17,600 pounds of nets hauled from Kauai beaches!  We featured the Net Patrol last month and wanted to follow up with a recap of their great event.

The Net Send Off Party was featured in the local press and you can view a great video of the event below.

If you don't live on Kauai and still want to help fight plastic pollution, check out the current One Foot At A Time cleanup contest as part of Rise Above Plastics Month.
