Marine Debris 2020
Marine Debris 2020 December 8th - December 11th, 2020 Marine debris clean-up days at LSSI are a wonderful opportunity to participate in marine conservation. Our event on December 8th-11th, will be a clean-up of Little Saint Simons Island Rainbow Beach. After breakfast participants will board a vessel for a 5-mile boat ride down the Hampton River to Rainbow Beach. Participants will disembark the boat, and begin walking a gorgeous two-mile stretch of beach on Little Saint Simon Island’s south end, in search of marine debris. Guests will be accompanied by naturalists and remain on the beach for several hours collecting marine debris, before boarding a vessel back to the Lodge in time for lunch. After lunch, all debris will be weighed, sorted, and counted. Guests are asked to participate in both stages of the clean-up (collection and sorting). The total duration of the clean-up day will be approximately six hours. It is important to note this will be a physically demanding day. Participants must be capable of handling several hours in the sun without access to restrooms. Additionally, all guests must be able to safely disembark an elevated boat (3-4 ft) onto soft sand/mud/water. If you are unsure of your abilities but still want to contribute to marine conservation, we recommend planning another visit to LSSI to collect marine debris at your leisure.
