PHILIPSBURG:— Last Friday the St Maarten Nature Foundation organized a beach cleanup with students of the Milton Peters College. Twenty-two first form students removed thirty bags of garbage from the beach and learned about the harmful impacts of trash on marine life. ‘All students worked really intensive to collect trash and even enjoyed doing so’ said Nature Foundation Projects Officer Melanie Meijer Zu Schlochtern. The Foundation and teachers were impressed by the motivation of the young students and hope that they continue to protect St Maarten’s environment. Nature is our Future; let’s keep our island clean together.
