Beach Cleanup with STINAPA Junior Rangers at Lagun
March 3 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am AST
In December, a huge invasion of sargassum weed started washing ashore on Bonaire’s eastern coast, including Lagun. Monumental efforts were made to remove the sargassum at Lagun before it started to decompose, as once it begins to do so, it removes all the oxygen in the water. The lack of oxygen will cause the death of various sea creatures, including juvenile turtles, lobsters, and fish.
Unfortunately, more sargassum has continued to come ashore, so on January 27, the STINAPA Junior Rangers will once again clean up at Lagun. Everyone’s help is greatly appreciated. If you’d like to help, please report to the area of Lagun at 9:00 AM.
