Keeping the beach clean

 Watamu beach is looking a whole lot cleaner thanks to students from local schools and other volunteers who took part in International Coastal Cleanup Day on Saturday.
And kids from Happy House Secondary School joined the frontline waging a war on litter and other debris on the beach.
International Coastal Cleanup (ICC) is organised by the Ocean Conservancy  and is the World's largest volunteer effort for our oceans and waterways.
More than 8 million kilograms of trash was collected by nearly 800,000 volunteers during the 2015 ICC.
Watamu Marine Association and Ocean Sole coordinated the Kenya coast cleanup for the fourth year running, along the entire coast of Kenya from Kiunga in the north to Msambweni in the south. Keny Wildlife
 coordinated the cleanup in Marine Protected Areas.
Our school's Mr Steve said:  "The activity was so good for our Happy House kids because they had time  to interact with pupils from other schools and also to learn different things about the coast and the problems caused by litter from the exercise
Thanks to our beloved Mama Sue and entire family for supporting the Happy House team taking part."
