Volunteers collected 178 pounds of trash at Seahurst Park Beach during Saturday’s International Coastal Cleanup.

This was part of what organizers at the Environmental Science Center called the largest international volunteer effort to protect the ocean.

The City of Burien sponsored the event, and ESC partnered with Puget Soundkeeper and the Ocean Conservancy to pitch-in. The Ocean Conservancy is fighting for trash-free seas and smartphone users can download their Clean Swell app to document trash for local and worldwide counts.

Puget Soundkeeper tallied the found items, including microplastics, throughout the Puget Sound basin.
