The community is coming out en masse to combat CNMI's marine debris! We have 33 registrations in and more coming every day.

Currently, the open beaches are: Bird Island, Forbidden Island, Jeffries Beach, Old Man By The Sea, San Roque and the Dandan pocket beaches. As so many of the beach areas are covered, the Coastal Cleanup Team is encouraging groups to adopt school compounds, neighborhoods, roadsides and known illegal dumping sites. All trash on land will end up in the sea - let's cover the entire island.
