The Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation thanked everyone who participated in the Ocean Conservancy’s annual International Coastal Cleanup on Sept. 19 by collecting trash on the beaches. Members of Sanibel Girl Scout Troop 200 joined the effort at the Sanibel Lighthouse Beach, leaving it much cleaner than it was. Event participants dropped off 316 pounds of trash and multiple crab traps from Sanibel and Captiva at SCCF, filling up its pickup. Even more trash was collected and reported virtually through the Ocean Conservancy’s app.
