Day 3 – Monofilament

A predawn walk along the beach is a great way to start the day.

I always like to look for treasures washed ashore at the high tide line. Typically, I’m looking for critters like sand dollars (which I found a few weeks ago on a beach walk with my niece at Ocean beach in San Francisco ).

What caught my eye along the beach at Kailua bay wasn’t biological, like coconut shells or seaweed. It was marine debris.

Garbage…


Yes, it is a fact that we humans produce a lot of garbage and some of it ends up in our environment. 

Yes, it is overwhelming to see the big pieces and all of the little pieces. 

I knew I couldn’t pick up all of the debris, but I had to do something.

 

I decided to pick up monofilament (the ball of green-blue plastic thread in the picture).

Read a bit about it on Wikipedia

I’m not going to solve the ocean trash problem alone, but I can help. Every bit counts.


Oh, I did find a critter – pufferfish (been dead for a while).
