Newsletter Sal – June 2017

Calao Luxembourg has performed two monthly beach cleaning over the last month in the North-Eastern shore of Sal Island, in the area of Pedro de Lume.

The amount of plastic debris, especially fragmented fishing nets, accumulating on the coast has increased over the recent months, and we decided to step up the frequency of our actions.
We focused during our first cleaning to larger debris, and during the second one we focused on the tiny bits of fishing nets and plastics, which required far more time and energy.
A group of 12 volunteers from Espargos helped us during each operation to collect overall more than 1 ton of marine waste in two days.

A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL OF THEM!
