Below is the latest update from Rachel on the Saipan International Coastal Cleanup coming up this weekend! WOW!

By the way, I will post GROUP photos for all to see and enjoy, so please e-mail them to me at and be sure to identify your group and cleanup location, as well as the total number of participants in your group. Thanks and please keep up the excellent community spirit! cinta


More than 1000 members of the Saipan community will be out on Friday and Saturday to combat marine debris! We have 44 registrations in and more coming every day.

EVERY BEACH AREA THAT WAS LISTED ON THE REGISTRATION FORM (and quite a few more) ARE ADOPTED!! This is great! 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.
