Saturday, September 20th marks the 29th Annual International Coastal Cleanup Day, sponsored by the Ocean Conservancy.
Fury Water Adventures is seeking volunteers from the Keys community to conduct a kayak and walking cleanup of Boca Chica Beach and mangrove shoreline of the Western Sambo Ecological Reserve on Saturday September 20, 9:00am-2:00pm.
This and other natural shoreline habitats are an important component of the coral reef ecosystem, providing mangrove habitat for countless species of juvenile reef fish, as well as native and migratory birds. Natural beaches, such as this one on Boca Chica, also provide nesting areas for endangered sea turtles. An estimated 6 million tons of marine debris is added to our oceans each year, causing entanglement and ingestion issues for our wildlife and destruction of sensitive habitats.
Staff from the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary will be on hand to discuss the issue of marine debris and to help direct cleanup efforts.
Fury is a proud Blue Star Operator who is committed to responsible tourism. Fury promotes coral reef conservation through education and sustainable snorkeling practices, helping to keep the reef healthy for generations to come.
This is a free event for the public. Water and snacks will be provided. For more information & to RSVP, please call the Fury Call Center 305-292-4600.
