Trout River Clean Up

Tuesday afternoon, a group of patrols went to Trout River to help clean up the ocean and the beach. The girls paired up with AHOI (Atlantic Healthy Oceans Initiative) that began in March. Their goal is to decrease the amount of garbage in the ocean and on the beaches. The girls learned that plastic doesn’t biodegrade, and marine species don’t know if it is plastic or actual food.  “We want our kids to see the world the way we see it”, said Jenna. Jenna and her friends picked up over a bag of garbage and tried to give reasons as to why the garbage was on the beach. They found a silk flower, and was in the ocean because it was a “lover that didn’t love anymore, so she threw it in the ocean”
