We are adding science

We are adding science to our beach clean up in Les Village! How much marine debris washes into Les beaches? What kind of debris are they and from where? To answer these questions, we measured the area designated for marine debris collection, we classified the debris collected, we counted them, estimated their weight, recorded them in a datasheet, and if this goes on for a year, we will database them. Thanks to our mentor the past week, Shelli Van Santen, from the National Marine Science Center of Southern Cross University in Coffs Harbour, Australia. With support and guidance from Prof. Steve Smith. Thanks to Indah Waty Hubbard family who helped in clearing the collection area along with Made Merta Yunaldi Yahya and guests of Gede Yudarta and Made Sresti's Segara Lestari Villas.
