Tulum, Q.R. — The city of Tulum has hired a group of workers to tackle the never-ending arrival of sargassum that has been making landfall along municipal shores. The director of the Federal Maritime Terrestrial Zone for Tulum, Reyes Adolfo Martín González, said that 50 people have been hired for the next two months to deal with the washed up algae.
“At this moment, 50 people are already working on the beaches. This program, carried out by the government of Tulum, will allow the tourism sector to resume its activities on the beach,” said Martín González.
He says beach cleaners are being divided into groups to work two shifts per day from the Santa Fe beach to Mezzanine beach. The beach cleaners will work with the support of tools and machinery to lift and transport the algae for removal.
