Crabs with beach trash homes- Northern Okinawa

Meet Seki!

TEDX OIST talk on subject by Shawn Miller www.youtube.com/watch?v=l6FWCyVQcNA

 

Seki is using a plastic measuring cap from a cough syrup bottle as a protective home.

 

Trash continues to wash on our beautiful shorelines. It is having an massive impact on our beaches and the animals that call it home.

 

Most common items washed on our shorelines ( lighters, caps, pet bottles, tooth brushes, razor's, Styrofoam, flip flops, floats, spoons, and rope) --- Lets keep our beaches clean!
