🌴 Padre Island Pick-up
--by mindyjourney, posted Mar 9, 2023
Litter bags provided by Padre Island National Park supports beachcombers to pick up trash as we stroll along the ocean’s edge. The bulk of the trash was plastic, with a random beach sandal, candy wrapper and beer bottle.
Truly, a LOT less litter than we have found previously, which is encouraging!
🐢 Park Ranger remembered the origami turtles I made for them years ago, when I gave them some again this visit.
The rangers and volunteers are HUGE in helping Kemp’s Ridley turtles (the most endangered sea turtle species) successfully hatch and release.
