Honolulu-based photographer Elyse Butler Mallams shot the International Coastal Cleanup in Kahuku, Hawaii for the Ocean Conservancy.
I photographed the International Coastal Cleanup at James Campbell National Wildlife Refuge in Kahuku, Hawaii for the Ocean Conservancy on September 15th. It was a great event to be a part of, I am passionate about the ocean and it made me happy to see so many people coming together out of love for the sea, doing their part picking up trash to protect our beautiful oceans and the life within it. Go take part in your local beach cleanup, or pick up trash when you see it by the water’s edge to keep our oceans healthy and marine life thriving.
