The Rozalia Project was at MBAC this month showcasing it’s new trash hunting robot which helps to keep our bays and ocean clean. The stop at MBAC was part of a nationwide tour to raise awareness and educate the public on keeping our waters clean.
Watch the robot search for trash on News 8
The robot found a few items around the dock area of MBAC, including a swim fin, and some kind of fisherman’s net, and had no problem bringing them to the surface for removal. To learn more about the Rozalia Project or their mission to remove marine debris from the surface to the sea floor through action, technology, outreach and research visit thier website at www.rozaliaproject.org.
Mission Possible: Clean the Bay was developed to help protect the marine habitat and wildlife while encouraging people to get out and enjoy our water. We all know that it is important to our local businesses and tourism, supporting boating, swimming, and fishing activities year round. Our boating and paddling communities are some of the groups most impacted by the presence of marine debris, so they’d love your help. The event will start at 8:00 a.m from South Shores Park and run until 11am. Participants are encouraged to bring their own boats, kayaks or paddleboards to help with the effort on the water. For those not bringing watercraft, shoreline help is welcome, too! San Diego Coastkeeper will be providing all cleanup materials and SeaWorld has generously provided prizes for participants. Following the event from 11am-noon, they will tally the trash count, distribute prizes and have food for participants from Rubios! San Diego Coastkeeper is looking forward to a great day keeping our waterways and beaches clean and hope to see you out there!
