We discussed marine debris awareness and prevention and assembled 350 fishing line recycling containers with the help of 25 middle school students at our Earth Day event!
I met Sydney at the Youth Ocean Conservation Summit and she really wanted to become involved in ocean conservation and make a difference. We discussed the Stow It Don’t Throw It project as a great start and she and her teacher attended my workshop and put a plan on paper. She has been planning non-stop since then! Congratulations, Sydney, on your recent presentations and getting your school and Girl Scouts involved.

Love A Sea Turtle and volunteers have assembled hundreds of personal monofilament recycling containers to help prevent marine debris. Make your own or be part of a group project – contact the Stow It-Don’t Throw It Project.
