Welcome to Beach Junki

A place to learn about the beach and sea turtles.  

Promoting Clean Beaches & Protecting Sea Turtles

Beach Junki was created after seeing first hand the need for beach education. Our goal is to provide information and resources for the community that will benefit both their safety and our sea turtles. 

Washed Up Project

The Washed Up Project has 3 initiatives to inspire the community and bring awareness to the plastic pollution that is washing up. Our ocean themed art piece, the beach toy borrow box, and the beach clean up baskets are displayed at Main Beach and Seaside Park in Fernandina Beach.  

Amelia Sea Turtle

 Our first Washed Up Project is called  Amelia Sea Turtle.  It was created by local artist, Sandra Baker-Hinton, who used washed up sunglasses, bottle caps and plastic pieces to construct the recognizable art work.   Amelia Sea Turtle  is currently displayed at Seaside Park in Fernandina Beach, Florida.  

Fill the holes

Our third Washed Up art piece is constructed from marine debris called Digging Deep is Dangerous. It was created by Jennifer Clayton and is displayed at Main Beach in Fernandina Beach, Florida, next to the Beach Toy Borrow Box. Jenn enjoys spending her time creating art from upcycled gift cards. Check out her social media @JupitaDesigns.
