It's been two years since we awoke to dramatic pictures and video from Japan where a 9.0-magnitude earthquake hit the country with a devastating tsunami that followed.
Large debris from that tsunami is still washing up on Hawaii's shores.
The debris, big and small, covers every inch of the Kamilo Beach coastline on the Big Island.
The foreign markings show most of it coming from Japan.
Hawaii Wildlife Fund's Megan Lamson has seen debris from Japan hit at a growing rate since fall. One of the items was a refrigerator with Japanese writing on the temperature dial.
There were also large buoys and even an intact fishing boat from Japan.
Volunteers from the Hawaii Wildlife Fund have been fighting the already big problem of marine debris only made worse with the 1.5 million tons of floating tsunami debris.
"It's disheartening to come out here and see all this marine debris in an area that's otherwise so remote. Debris that's washing up from other countries," said Lamson.
Inside a dead albatross, plastics filled its body. David Hyrenbach, a professor from Hawaii Pacific University, and his team are researching the alarming rate of debris in the birds.
Inside the stomach of a 2-month-old albatross, they find part of a drain and part of a hair brush.
