The staff of the Dadonghai beach are cleaning rubbish
On the afternoon of 30th October, 2012, more than 100 netizens and volunteers from the Blue Ribbon Ocean Conservation Society (BROCS) cleaned up beach garbage left in the aftermath of the 23rd tropical storm Son-Tinh on Dadonghai beach in Sanya.
The tropical storm Son-Tinh swept across Sanya on 27th October, leaving a huge volume of litter swamping the ocean and being washed up on-shore in Dadonghai.
The BROCS launched their beach clean-up campaign on Sina Weibo, a twitter-like service in China, to protect the marine environment on Dadonghai beach.
While more than 60 tonnes of garbage have been cleaned up, dozens of tonnes of garbage still remain. It’s expected that it will take two days to restore Dadonghai to its normal beauty.
The BROCS will continue to organize volunteers to clean up garbage on Dadonghai beach, and call for more people passionate about the environment to join them.
