Leadbetter Beach: ‘Keiki Bowl’ Surf Contest & Marine Pollution Education

This morning Dorothy, Patrick, and I set up a booth at the Lakey Peterson’s Keiki Bowl surf contest put on by the Surf Happens Foundation to raise awareness about the important health of sandy beach ecosystems and the dangers of plastic pollution. Kids loved filtering sand and looking through our field microscope setĀ up for them to see micro plastics in the sand.
