More than 1,250 volunteers of all ages took action and made a difference during the 30th Annual California Coastal Cleanup Day in Pacifica.

They came from far and wide to our beaches, parks, shoreline, creeks, parking lots and neighborhood streets from Mussel Rock and Sweeney Ridge to Pedro Point down to Half Moon Bay to  participate and learn about protecting and preserving our coastal treasures by keeping debris off our beaches, out of our ocean and waterways!  Read more about the September 20th event and the results here.  The Pacifica Beach Coalition extends our gratitude to you, our Earth Heroes!

LATEST NEWS: MUSSEL ROCKSTARS DISCOVER POSSIBLE
 JAPANESE TSUNAMI DEBRIS

A fiberglass skiff possibly from Japan, which may or may not be from the 2011 tsunami disaster, recently washed ashore at Mussel Rock (near Avalon Canyon in Daly City) 
in August 2014. The site’s Adopt A Beach team discovered the skiff and went the extra mile to alert proper authorities to begin to identify and arrange for its removal. It is yet to be determined if the skiff displaying Japanese writing originates from the 2011 tsunami, though it is a similar risk coming from waters that allow foreign organisms (aquatic invasive species) to grow and then be transported to our fragile coastal environment.
It is the third boat to come to shore in California since 2011, and is an example of how the Pacifica Beach Coalition and authorities are reacting as they would to any tsunami-related debris.  It was evaluated for radiation, although the risk is unlikely because the Fukoshima nuclear meltdown and subsequent leakage occurred after the tsunami spread debris far and wide.

It is expected the Japanese consulate will receive information on the findings to reach out to the government of Japan to try to identify an original owner and determine whether the boat was lost during the tsunami.  See more images here.  Read Pacifica Tribune article here
