Sea Shepherd Pohoiki Beach Clean Up

Commentary by Andrea Capilla

Pohoiki ( Issac Hale Beach Park) is located on lower Puna on the Big Island of Hawaii. It was one of the only accessible beaches on this side of the island, with a boat ramp, and 3 bays which were favorites to local surfers and bodyboarders. However, one year ago Kilauea Volcano was going on its second month of eruption and the lava flow covered most of the ocean access for lower Puna.
