during one Saturday in March of this year. Two groups organized the volunteer campaign: Israel Umpierre's Pesca, Playa and Ambiente Group and Jose Aponte's Kayakeros Association of Kayakers. The volunteers acted in a coordinated, organized assault on the trash. Kayakers rowed into the mangrove shores and collected trash in black bags. Tarpon charter captains then drove in to open spots to take the bags to collection depots onshore. Then, heavy garbage trucks drove in to collect the trash and haul it away. The clean-up also drew attention from two members of Puerto Rico's executive branch. The secretary of Natural and Environmental Resources, and the secretary of the Department of Sports and Recreation both attended the entire event, and the clean-up was covered by Univision and Telemundo, the newspaper Nuevo Dia—the largest on the island—and Pescando en los Cayos, the only Spanish language fshing show in the U.S. Organizers hope the success and media attention will lead to more clean-up projects in the future.
