Keep wildlife safe - clean up the beach
Jun/09/17 07:24 PM
“Sentinels of the Sound” Beach Cleanup is co-sponsored by Seal Sitters with sister network Sno-King Marine Mammal Response.
For Seal Sitters, derelict fishing gear is an up close and personal issue. Once again, the cleanup will be in honor of newborn seal pup Sandy, who was rescued by Seal Sitters in August of 2011 and rehabilitated at PAWS Wildlife Center. After months of rehab, she was finally released back to the wild, but found dead 66 days later, entangled in derelict fishing line off the Edmonds pier.
The event is also in honor of the juvenile gray whale that died on Arroyos beach in April of 2010. The necropsy revealed only human trash in the whale’s stomach.

RSVP is requested to ensure we have enough materials on hand for volunteers.
