Several bags of garbage were cleaned from the BBQ beach of Villimale’ in a collaborative effort between Save the Beach Maldives, Project Damage Control, Good Riddance Project, the Salvage Project and Muhyiddin Eco Club. Unusual amounts of floating garbage had been coming onto the beach this past week. From the looks of it the garbage seems to have been in the water for a while and had been drifting with a current.
Prior to the cleanup we received a presentation and information session by Race for Water who are on a trip around the world studying the ocean and beach pollution!
