Dear Tweeters,

The following commentary appeared in My Edmonds News about a grebe that was entangled in fishing line off of the Edmonds pier.

The good news is that Edmonds will soon be implementing a Monofilament Fishing Line Recovery and Recycling Program with the remodel of the pier.

In addition, the following cities, counties and agencies have agreed to implement the program in designated areas:

Bellevue, Bothell, Bremerton, Chelan County - PUD, Clark County, Des Moines, Duvall, Edmonds, Everett, Federal Way, Kenmore, Kent, Jefferson County, King County, Kirkland, Lacey, Marysville, Mason County, Mercer Island, Monroe, Moses Lake, Mount Vernon, Newcastle, PenMet Parks, Port Angeles, Port of Everett, Port of Port Angeles, Redmond, Renton, Sammamish, SeaTac, Seattle, Snohomish County, Vancouver, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, Washington Department of Natural Resources, Washington State Parks and Whatcom County.

We can all help wildlife by picking up and properly disposing of fishing line when we see it. It is a hazard to people, pets, and wildlife.
