This past Sunday, the divers visited Sand Pool and Canyon Lands, two sites they hadn’t visited in over a year. While they did come up with armfulls of marine debris, it was far less than they’d expected for such a long interim since their last visit.
“We didn’t come up with a ton of stuff, but that’s actually such a good thing,” said Key Dives’ marine conservation coordinator, Cortney Benson. “What we’re doing is working!”
A first-time cleanup participant agreed, saying, “I wish we got more ‘cause it feels good to help, but at the same time I’m really happy we didn’t find that much trash out there. Can’t wait to do this again.”
