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 benifit 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 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.

Shrimpers Paradise

The second art work constucted from marine debris is called Shrimpers Paradise. It was created by college student artist, Kazuki Roca, who used washed up shotgun shells, and fishing lures to construct an underwater scene.  Shrimpers Paradise is displayed at Main Beach in Fernandina Beach, Florida, next to the Beach Toy Borrow Box.

Our Beach Toy Borrow Box & Treasure Chest

During the years, we have found so many beach toys that we created the Beach Toy Borrow Box installed at main Beach. We also have our Beach Toy Treasure Chest installed at Sea Side Park.

Beach Clean-Up Basket Program

In 2023, we created the Beach Clean-Up Basket Program to inspire the community by having baskets  available for visitors to use to clean up the beach.

Beach Junki is a 501c(3) non-profit founded in Fernandina Beach Florida in 2020. Our organization depends on your support to help fund the cost of our outreach programs and educational materials to distribute at events. Thank you for donating to our mission.
