Join the South Florida community on two coastal cleanups all happening on Saturday, Septemeber 20, 2014.

Trash on the beach and in our waters such as food wrappers, straws, cigarettes and bottle caps can disturb aquatic existence. Balloons are repeatedly found at the cleanings, this item could block sea turtles and other animals’ digestive tracts. Fishing line and hooks can tangle marine life and also hurt humans walking along the beaches.

The reason for these coastal cleanups is to reassure and boost the public to be habitually cognizant and mindful of the need to keep all coasts spotless of harmful products and ensure its beautiful natural state. Every one of us can recover the state of the seashores, coastline and dunes to guarantee that our surroundings continue to function as places both people and nature can use safely.
