A RECORD turnout of volunteers came to help clean up the beach and sea at the beach between Mojacar and Carboneras.
They started the purge on pollution at 8:30 am. The 24 Eager Eco Warriors split into three groups, two teams of SCUBA Divers from the Albox Diving Club searched for rubbish under the sea and one team of beachcombers on shore collected more rubbish and cleaned up this tranquil seaside beauty spot.
The tenacious team of volunteers worked tirelessly through to lunch time when they finally collected the last of the rubbish. A well-deserved pat on the back and barbeque followed.
In total nine large bin liners of rubbish were collected. All rubbish collected has been recorded as data and sent to The Project AWARE headquarters, to be analysed and added to data collected by the thousands of groups who have participated in this world wide Month of action. This Data will help in combating and reversing, sea and coastal pollution on a global scale.
