Hands Across the Sands Events Draw Thousands

Thousands of people held hands across the sands on Florida's beaches at noon on Saturday, June 26, 2010 to show their support for clean energy and opposition to new offshore oil drilling.

What began as a movement in Florida last February, spread throughout the country and the world today. On Florida beaches, organizers from around the state reported that hundreds to thousands of people gathered to draw a human line in the sand. Final tallies of the tu

rnout are expected Sunday or Monday.

On Miami Beach, the human line stretched beyond what the eye could see, and Audubon of Florida was there. For more information, visit Hands Across the Sand.
