We want to make marine reserve boundaries easy to identify so those who go looking for a feed can respect understand where the boundaries are and protect the marine reserves for future generations.
Every month we get out and do a clean up. We get out there and remove whatever we can. Part of the process is to ensure as many critters get put back in the ocean. We also bag and count what we remove from the ocean.
