Time to Clean up Playa Larga in Maunabo, Puerto Rico

This is what I saw this morning on this beautiful tropical paradise:  A trash studded beach! No, I couldn't believe it!  This beach is part of a Nature Preserve, but there it was littered with trash.  Grant you, the type of trash that it was looks more of the type of illegal immigrant than something some one left on the beach after a visit.  There were old milk crates, empty plastic bottles, a tangled lift jacket,  a cracked ping pong ball, and even a fisherman's thick roped net!  It was unbelievable.

It looks to be a big job but with a lively group of volunteers they could make the work light.  Perhaps the town could chip in a truck as well to haul off the stuff.  Maybe the Sierra Club of Puerto Rico could get involved.  It is such a shame that such a lovely beach could be so littered.
