Welcome to Beach Junki
To rasise public awareness of the need to keep the beach clean and safe for nesting sea turtles.
To spread the word about the different kind of beach junk washing up, the treasures and the trash.
The Washed Up Project
We use marine debris as building materials to create ocean-themed art work to be displayed at local beaches to help raise awareness of the harmful effects of plastic pollution to the environment.
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 contruct the recognizable art work. Amelia Sea Turtle is currently displayed at Seaside Park in Fernandina Beach, Florida. To learn more about the artist, visit Clay Times Art Center in downtown Fernandina Beach.
