Sandy Hook Bay cleanup with Sea Shepherd Conservation Society slated for November 18th

For anyone local, they know the beauty and enjoyment that Sandy Hook has to offer. However, its beautiful beaches and bay are constantly overwhelmed by trash, which is why the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society is organizing a cleanup for Sandy Hook Bay on Sunday, November 18th.

Join Sea Shepherd Conservation Society NYC volunteers for their first Sandy Hook Bay clean up in Sandy Hook NJ. Regardless of where you live, garbage is being dumped into the oceans every day, threatening marine wildlife that may mistake it for food and can starve to death.

This year, Sea Shepherd NYC will try to reach more beaches in both New York and New Jersey to show people how they can make a difference in what happens in our oceans!

We will meet Ranger Steve Schiffer at the Sandy Hook Parking Lot B between 10:00 – 12:00PM and clean up the beach until 12:00, then sort the trash to show people what was found.

Don’t forget to wear your Sea Shepherd shirt, hoodie, and beanie! We will provide bags and work gloves.
We look forward to seeing you there.

For more information, please email nyc@seashepherd.org.

This event will be held from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM over at the Sandy Hook Parking Lot B. Below, you’ll find our photos and video from Clean Ocean Action’s annual beach cleanup at Sandy Hook Beach, which will provide you some insight to the kind of challenges that the area faces.
