The Living Oceans Society organized a tsunami debris cleanup of gigantic proportions in Cape Scott park, at the Northern tip of Vancouver Island, this past summer. 19 volunteers took part in the cleanup over 12 days, at four locations in the park: Sea Otter Cove, Lowrie Bay, Helen Islands, and San Josef Bay.

A helicopter, a landing craft, and a raft were used to collect and transport 35 cubic metres of debris, weighing 2,670 kg, off the shorelines! The majority of this huge amount of debris removed was recycled or re-used.
