Conservation Organization Working to Clean Up AK Beaches

Adam Kane, KDLG – Dillingham

Ocean currents in the Pacific are responsible for depositing tons of debris from Asia, America and elsewhere on  Alaska’s shores each year. One Alaskan conservation organization is working to remove that debris, to restore the beaches to their natural condition. Since 2003, the MCA Foundation, the non-profit arm of the Marine Conservation Alliance, has been working to tackle the problem of marine debris in Alaska by coordinating cleanup activities around the state. Anne Vanderhoeven is the Board President for the Foundation. She says 2010 was a great year for the foundations cleanup efforts.
