LIHUE, Hawaii (AP) - A Kauai organization has been awarded a grant to help clean up debris from the Japanese tsunami.
According to The Garden Island, the state Department of Health says the Surfrider Foundation of Kauai received a $25,000 grant to help clean up Kauai's shorelines. Carl Berg, chairman of the foundation, says the money will be used to fund a pair of fellowships for students at Kauai Community College. 1 of the students will coordinate beach cleanups and net patrols. The other will monitor tsunami debris.
Berg says starting in February there has been a large spike in the amount of tsunami-related debris.
