Costa Cleanups works hard to keep everyone safe while cleaning difficult to reach places

South Padre Island @North Beach

We chose this area to clean even though it is only accessible by a 4x4 vehicle. This is an important area because this is where endangered Ridley Sea Turtles nest on South Padre Island. Our beach cleanup was a success. We cleaned 13 miles of beach to give our turtles a safe place to lay their eggs!! We also removed 9,120 pounds of trash reducing the amount of trash in the ocean.

These are pictures from our very first large-scale beach cleanup on South Padre Island – North Beach. This was such a great first annual cleanup event in this important wildlife area. This area is critical to our endangered Ridley Sea Turtles and birds. Our community and government all stepped up to help us help our animals. We had 300 volunteers, 5 educational booths, served lunch through local donations, cleaned 13 miles of beach and removed 9,120 pounds of trash. This was an amazing first step to getting this area cleaned for our wildlife and ocean. We hope to have your support to continue having these great events.
