Surfrider is looking for more volunteers to help with our weekly Coastal Cleanups – Net Patrols on Wednesday afternoons.

A great program that the Surfrider Kauaʻi Chapter runs is the Net Patrol to help collect and properly dispose derelict fishing gear that washes up on local beaches.  Nets and ropes come primarily from the commercial fishing industry, drifting for thousands of miles across the ocean and winding up on Hawaiian shore. Whales, turtles, monk seals, birds and fish get entangled in these nets and could die. If they are washed back out to sea, they can continue to harm wildlife.

This weekly activity many times involves a hike to a remote rocky coastline. Volunteers need to be aware that this activity may not be appropriate for individuals who have injuries. The work can be very physically challenging but very rewarding.

Location changes depending on where the marine debris washes up.

For more information or to report a net or other item that washes up on Kauaʻi’s Shores:
