INTERNATIONAL COASTAL CLEANUP THIS WEEKEND
September 16, 2016 | Richard Sites
International Coastal Cleanup is this weekend where volunteers fan out and collect trash from our oceans and the surrounding shore. Look at the impressive results listed below.
From their blog:
For 30 years, Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup (ICC), has helped keep trash off our beaches and out of the ocean!
Volunteers from states and territories throughout the U.S. and more than 100 countries come together each year and participate in an ICC event near them. You can sign up to clean up or propose a new cleanup site! Three decades of Cleanups have yielded more than 210 million pounds of trash being collected and saved from polluting our ocean. Over 11.5 million volunteers have covered more than 360,000 miles of coastlines across the world.
If you are a scuba diver, there are plenty of opportunities to get out and help clean our underwater paradise. I will be joining Jupiter Drift Divers as we dive aboard Deep Obsession Charters (formerly Jim Abernathy’s Scuba Adventures) in Lake Park and head out to help clean up.
