This is a very well made video of The Shuyak Island Cleanp Project that I participated in last summer. The video was produced by one of the volunteers that came out from Sydney Australia and she was part of the group that replaced us when we had to leave.
Navigating on the water can be a little tricky for the novice. More than ever before, people rely more heavily on technology to get them from point A to point B.
