Saving our Seas, one collection at a time!
Saturday, September 19 marks International Coastal Clean-up Day and the Department of Environment and Coastal Resources (DECR) is looking to continue its tradition of getting the whole country involved in cleaning up the coastlines of the Turks and Caicos Islands.
The main goal of this initiative is to encourage people to go out into their communities, across the TCI, and remove litter found along the shoreline, underwater, or in bushes in order to help create healthy waters for everyone, including the wildlife that calls these coasts home.
You, your school, your business, and/or your organization can get involved by getting a group together and spending an hour out of your day cleaning up a beach, bushy area, path, road, or sea-bed in your local area. You can also join the DECR at the Kid’s Park, lower Bight Road, Provo from 07:00-09:00 on the 19th.
Show you care for the TCI’s natural environment by getting involved in International Coastal Clean-up Day! Together we can fight for trash-free seas, on Saturday, September 19. It doesn’t matter where you are, just grab a bag and collect that litter!
**Strict COVID-19 protocol will be observed and enforced.
