ATEK Busan Volunteers has organized a very unique opportunity to work with a local environmentalist group this Earth Day in the protected wetland and estuary in Busan. Thanks to our volunteer Sunny Yun and her contact at Wetlands and Birds Korea we have arranged a permit to clean up Shinho Island, a sandy islet in the Nakdong river.
Get ready for some serious cleanup. This is a heavily trashed up area due to its proximity to the river mouth.
Place: Shinja Island
Place to meet: RSVP to email@example.com for directions
10:00 boarding at the Shinho Harbor
10:30-12:00 collecting trash
12:00-13:00 lunch* & birding
13:30 returning to the Shinho Harbor..
Lunch on the island will be a Zero Waste Potluck. Please bring your own sustainable plate, cup and eating utensils.
Also bring sunglasses, sunblock, water, gloves if you want them, good shoes (not sure what state the island is in- just don't wear flip flops)
Fee for a boat: 10,000won
Total fee for a boat: 150,000won
There is a maximum RSVP of 14 people for this event. So please RSVP with integrity so that we don't miss an opportunity to have as many people attend as possible.
