Local Surfrider chapter supports international effort to collect Tsunami debris

The Olympic Peninsula Chapter (OPC) received great coverage in the Peninsula Daily News for their help in cleaning up coast
al beaches and discovering debris from the Japanese Tsunami. Tsunami debris has just begun to land on U.S. and Canadian beaches. This November, the OPC found an unusual and large marine float believed to be Tsunami debris while cleaning up a remote beach on the outer coast. The Chapter partnered with the Coast Guard, who helped remove 1,800 lbs of debris by helicopter. Cleaning up Tsunami debris and recovering it when possible so it may be returned to Japan requires a collective effort. Read the full story. Connect with the Olympic Peninsula Chapter to get involved.
