On July 18, nine BNN employees participated in a beach clean-up at Pierce Island in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. The event was a joint initiative between the BNN Community Committee and the Blue Ocean Society for Marine Conservation.
“We thought it would be fun to participate in an outdoor activity that also benefited our community,” said Sabrina Christian, audit senior and member of the Community Committee. “The weather was perfect and the tide was low, so we were able to make a full sweep of the beach and collect everything in sight that wasn’t supposed to be there. We were surprised by how much trash we acquired just from one small area, and were glad to be a part of this clean-up to help the Blue Ocean Society’s efforts in conservation and research.”
BNN volunteers included Community Committee members Marrissa Piro, audit senior, Doug DeLara, audit senior, Katie George, tax staff, and Sabrina Christian, as well as Maria Mann, audit staff, Lauren Tozlowski, audit staff, Kim Janelle, administrative assistant, Morgan Hilow, audit staff, and Ofir Campeanu, audit intern. The volunteers gathered approximately 37 pounds of trash from the beach in less than two hours, mostly consisting of glass pieces, and also including fishing lures, batteries, cups, and straws.
