Removing 4 Tons of Plastic from Turtle Nesting Beach

The nesting season for the vulnerable Loggerhead turtle is only a few months away, and one of their biggest nesting beaches, on a remote island in Cabo Verde, has for years been full of plastic and abandoned fishing gear.

After a three-day joint beach cleanup effort between Sea Shepherd and Cabo Verdean organization Biosfera Cabo Verde, over four tons of marine debris was removed, leaving the beaches safe for turtles once again.
