Seaweed Relocation – Beach Erosion Prevention

On the morning of June 1, 2010, behind the La Quinta Inn & Suites on South Padre Island, Texas. Our efforts to prevent beach erosion have worked. A couple of weeks ago, we reported on EnjoySPI.com that we were working diligently to clean the sargassum (commonly known as sea weed) from the shore, and stack it up in rows along our sea wall, in order to trap sand and form dunes. If this works, which it has been thus far, it will provide an example of how local beach front businesses can do their part to prevent beach erosion and preserve our precious beach, which hundreds of thousands of visitors from around the world enjoy year after year.
