feb18_2013_littlehamacaOn Presidents Day, Reef Relief in partnership with the City of Key West was joined by 21 volunteers including City Commissioner Tony Yaniz, who scoured Key West’s Little Hamaca Park. Volunteers removed 734 lbs of debris from Key West’s largest natural area. Among the debris collected were bottles, tires, plastic bags and a bike frame. This event was held as part of Key West’s February Water Quality month. Thanks for all your hard work to all the volunteers!

Community cleanup events are important to prevent debris from entering our marine environment. Marine debris can injure, entangle, or even kill sea turtles, birds and bottom dwelling organisms like hard and soft corals, and sponges. The shores and waters of Florida Keys provide vital habitat for the endangered and threatened fish, wildlife, plants and migratory birds and are nurseries for fish and other marine animals.

If you know a shoreline site in the Florida Keys in need of a cleanup please contact Reef Relief with details at 305-294-3100 or [email protected]. Lets cleanup up our shores!

Reef Relief is a nonprofit membership organization dedicated to improving and protecting our coral reef ecosystem.
