During the months of June, July & August of 2013 Bahia Aventuras & Geoporter are working with students to construct trash containers made from plastic bottles used during the tours. The student groups meet every Friday, after a Whale Watching Tour at the headquarters of Bahia Aventuras to work with Cindy Thiele , Luz Mirian Badilla & Amy Work (active community collaborators & Geoporter members) and our guides Wayner and Reimer. During the afternoon they create 3-4 trash containers that are composed of 458 bottles each. During this process the students have the opportunity to learn how to transform and resume trash and recyclable in order to minimize the pollution of our oceans and environment.
The goal is to deliver and place these trash containers for classrooms in the schools, at the newly constructed covered bus stops andat the entrance to Mariono Ballena National Park in our community.
Other projects students groups are working on are beach clean ups and painting and repairing the rangers stations and the facilities at the Marino Ballena National Park.
