Marine Debris Monitoring Program
The EPA and the Ocean Conservancy Developed the National Marine Debris Monitoring Program. It was a five-year, monthly study, designed to determine the sources of litter on our beaches. STSTI, along with Save-A-Life and Adopt-A-Beach Hawaii, continues to cleanup and track the 30 Marine-debris study items. The information gained through this program gives our researchers in Hawaii a better understanding of Hawaiian trends in the sources and types of Land and Marine litter collected. For more information and totals from our tracking study with the EPA on Oahu check out: http://marinedebris.noaa.gov/info or http://www.oceanconservancy.org/our-work/marine-debris/mdm_debris.html
Save the Sea Turtles International (STSTI)
Save the Sea Turtles International, a Public Non Profit Foundation, has sponsored Beach Clean-ups on the North Shore of Oahu every month for over 13 years. We document and cleanup the 30 marine-debris study items on Hawaii’s Beaches, Highways and in the ocean. Many turtles and other sea life are injured, sickened or killed each year in Hawaii and worldwide due to land and marine man-made debris. We are changing that, one beach at a time, with the Adopt-A-Beach Hawaii.org. We are registered with the State of Hawaii and the IRS as a Non-Profit.
Certified in good standing, 20 years, with the State of Hawaii.
We have many programs and always need volunteers! We even do Birthday parties.
****Certificates for Community Service are available online after clean-up participation.
***Pre-scheduled “Extra” Beach Clean Ups are available upon request.
