On Saturday, October 12, 2019, from 8:00 to 9:30 a.m., 15 volunteers held another “Protect the ocean. Clean the Beach” love event at a secluded small beach in Jiyang District, Sanya. 15 volunteers included 12 international volunteers, 6 males, 4 females, 2 children and 3 Chinese volunteers. Volunteers paddled from Dadonghai to Xiaodonghai for 25 minutes to the destination to clean up the beach and afterwards shipped the trash by a fishing boat back to Xiaodonghai shore.

After 1.5 hours of cleaning, volunteers cleaned up and counted out 150 kg of garbage: 2 big and 4 small bags of plastic garbage, 2 large bubbles, 7 small bubbles, 3 big and 1 small bags of plastic bottles, floating balls, ship parts, and miscellaneous garbage.

In the afternoon, all trash was transported by fish boat and freight car to Sanya Intercontinental Hotel for sorting and centralized treatment.
