Ocean Conservancy Announces International Coastal Clean Up
Nearly 12 million people and counting have been part of the world’s biggest volunteer effort to protect the ocean. The Ocean Conservancy is hoping you will join them.
Today, plastic has been found in 62% of all sea birds and in 100% of sea turtle species. Every year during Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup®, hundreds of thousands of volunteers comb lakes, rivers and beaches around the world for trash. For over three decades, more than 12 million volunteers have collected over 220 million pounds of trash.
A problem as big as plastic in the ocean requires a big response! By participating in the International Coastal Cleanup, everyone can make a difference. Join millions of volunteers who love the ocean and want to protect it. This year’s International Coastal Cleanup is Saturday, September 16th, 2017.
