Marine debris--or trash that has washed or been dumped into our ocean and coastal areas--is not only unsightly but can also pose a serious hazard for humans and marine life. On Bonaire, beach-goers made a trash sculpture from debris that came from as far away as South Africa. Make your own statement against marine debris by joining the annual International Coastal Clean-Up at a location near you!
