Groups Host Clean Up For Passamaquoddy Bay Islands

Cooke Aquaculture is providing three boats for a clean-up tomorrow on the beaches of the Passamaquoddy Bay Islands.

Annie Morrison of the Nature Conservancy of Canada says they will be collecting marine trash from Simpson Island, Barnes Island and Mowatt Island which are all off of Deer Island. She tells CHSJ News that ranges from ropes and nets to shoes.
She says the purpose of the cleanup is to keep the beaches clean for the birds who call the islands home.
Morrison adds they hope to have up to 30 volunteers for the clean-up.
