Zone 0 was beautiful and clean with the exception of a large hole, a few scraps of paper, and 12 towels. No tracks this Wed., but so happy we have three nests on our beach:)
KIC volunteers have consistently reported lots of towels left on the beach. These towels are apparently being handed out by Shell Island Resort. Kim picked up over 50 towels a few weeks ago. Towels and other fabric/clothing items that get washed out to sea become part of the food chain for animals. Remnants of clothing have been found in the stomach of a stranded whale. You can read of one such account in Capt. Charlie Moore's book, Plastic Ocean.
