Uruguay's consul, Lourdes Bonet, said she felt it was her duty to help with the efforts.
"A person continues to live in the place where he or she lives," she said。 "And they must returnall that hospitality that has been received。"
Ecuador's consul, Eduardo Rivadeneira, praised the efforts to clean the beach。
"I had never come to this park and I think it's spectacular," he said. "Everyone is from all overthe world sharing this great moment."
