Project Title: Shoreline Marine Debris Removal from Shuyak Island, Alaska - 2015 Funding Year: 2015 State/Territory Coverage: Alaska
Project Abstract

In this two year project, Island Trails Network will lead groups of volunteers in removing debris from remote shorelines on Shuyak Island, in the Kodiak Archipelago of Alaska.  Volunteers will spend two weeks in the field, working from kayaks to remove debris from 60 miles of shoreline.  Over the course of the project,  the group will remove an estimated 60,000 lbs of debris for removal by kayak or power vessel.  Once removed, debris will be sorted at the ITN facility in Kodiak for disposal, and use in a community-driven awareness campaign targeting the local public and fishing industry as well as tourist visitors.
