Coastinista: Your Daily Cup of Coastal Conservation (Green Post-Halloween)

Last night was fun! I went back to my roots for a hometown Halloween celebration with long-time friends and new-found favs. Halloween, after all, is one of my favorite holidays (one behind Earth Day, of course). Halloween is creepy funtastsic! The scariest thing about Halloween is the waste! Costumes that you might only use once, candy that comes in individual wrappers, and pumpkins only used to carve scary faces on them and then tossed, all these things add up.  The USDA National Agricultural Statistics Service states that Americans have a demand for around 1.1 billion pounds of pumpkins per year. According to Ecouterre, around 85 percent of Halloween costumes end up in our landfills.  That is a lot of wasted for just one night! […]

Coastinista: Your Daily Cup of Coastal Conservation (Tangled Up in the Blue)

A few years ago, as seen in these photos, I was doing a beach cleanup at the South end of Topsail Island and came across this Common Loon that was hooked, tangled, and emaciated. I was able to grab him, remove the hook and line, but he was still in bad shape.  I took him to Possumwood Acres Wildlife Rehab in Hubert where he recovered and was released. This is not all that uncommon and happens from time-to-time when surf and pier fishing. This summer, while attending the Southeastern Marine Debris Consortium Workshop in Charleston, I got a text message from a friend, who was pier fishing, with a photo of a Loggerhead Sea Turtle entangled in his line. I […]
