OceansWatch sailors help clean-up Tonga
OceansWatch members on the Ha'apai group of islands in Tonga contributed to the success of an enormous cleanup event in October organized by the New Zealand charity Sustainable Coastlines. Over 3000 people turned out from a total population of around 4500, with young and old joining forces to pick up rubbish from every corner of Foa and Lifuka Islands. In this major effort to clean their coastlines, Ha'apai Islands have provided a blue print for other like communities around the World. An article in Sail World.
