In November 2018, SeaChange Marine Conservation Society spent 15 chilly days removing debris, trash and other discarded items from the bottom of Porpoise Bay near Sechelt, BC. As an organization, SeaChange focuses on restoring Eel Grass beds, which often means the first step is to remove an alarming amount of junk tossed into nearshore areas.

 

In the two days, I spent in the bay, the team of three removed thousands of pounds of plastic netting, four generators, two outboard motors, a BBQ, a sewing machine, sheet metal, lead batteries, car tires, and so on. I documented their experience from the surface.
