POSTED: 12/9/14 11:17 AM

GREAT BAY–The St. Maarten Nature Foundation took part in the wide-scale cleanup of the Simpson Bay Lagoon spearheaded by Vromi Minister Maurice Lake and his ministry, in collaboration with the St. Maarten Marine Trades Association. The logistics were jointly organized by the Nature Foundation and the SMMTA.

During the cleanup the Nature Foundation focused on the removal of wrecks and major garbage on the lagoon. With the assistance of the Maritime Affairs Department many wrecks were removed within the lagoon, including those which were damaged by Hurricane Gonzalo and were wrecked to the side of the airport road. The Nature Foundation expressed the hope that a wide scale cleanup such as the one held on Saturday can be a yearly event where all the stakeholders of the Simpson Bay Lagoon can come together and hold a wide scale cleanup at the beginning of the yachting season.

The Foundation also thanked all of the stakeholders who participated in the cleanup.
