This past week YME members joined up with Lyford Cay International School to do a beach clean up at Jaw’s Beach near Clifton Heritage Park. We arrived on the scene in force and broke up into two groups: one for underwater and the other for land.
We had about 10 brave souls bear the chilly water in order to serve a good cause. Fortunately we did not find much trash in the water, mostly shards of glass or entire glass bottles and some plastic. We took every piece of trash we could out of the ocean and then ran out all blue-lipped and covered in goosebumps.
The rest of the group went along the beach and picked up trash along the shore and further inland. We went far into the bush to clean all around the pond, even missing the group picture at the end because some of us got a little turned around in our adventuring! Most trash found was plates, cans and beer bottles.
It is nice to see that people are enjoying the beauty of Jaw’s Beach. It is easily one of the best public beaches in Nassau. We just must remember that while we are enjoying ourselves, we want to make sure our next visit is just as enjoyable. No leaving our meal debris behind to ruin the beach for others
