International Coastal Cleanup is today. Oceana, Hol Chan Marine Reserve, students from San Pedro High School and the San Pedro Leo’s Club are leading the charge to clean up beach areas on Ambergris Caye. On Ambergris Caye, there will be two groups – one that will be going to clean the beach at the turtle nesting grounds and the other group cleaning the beach downtown. The group going up north is completed and they meet at the Hol Chan Marine Reserve Office. The second group that will clean the downtown beaches meet at the Boca del Rio Park. Gloves, garbage bags and water will be provided. Everyone can join in the cleanup effort. We meet between 8:30 AM. Let’s all come out and clean our beaches and other coastal areas. For more information, call Jorge Aldana at 634-1171, 662-0143.

Oceana and Hol Chan Marine Reserve Team up for Coastal Cleanup

As part of the International Coastal Cleanup Day, The Hol Chan Marine Reserve and volunteers from the San Pedro High School conducted a beach cleanup at the turtle nesting beach in the Bacalar Chico Marine Reserve. The Clean Up took place on Saturday, September 28, 2013 where they collected a total of 13 -55 gallon trash bags. Belize’s participation is part of the largest global volunteer effort to help protect our seas, lakes, lagoons, rivers & creeks. Each year volunteers spend a few hours removing debris and trash from beaches and the banks of waterways, recording the refuse removed. Last year’s efforts in Belize saw close to 1,000 volunteers – many of whom are Oceana Wavemakers—remove 8,696 pounds of rubbish from more than 25 miles of coastline and waterways in over 40 locations across the Jewel.

Here is a great answer for Belize's coastal garbage issue as well the mainland. It's subtitled, so read along.

OCEANA Cleans Up Waterways

On Saturday, the 22nd Annual Coastal National Coastal and Riverways Cleanup campaign was held, and Oceana Belize and the Scout Association of Belize are reporting that almost 2,000 volunteers participated country wide.

They worked on cleaning up sections of the sea, different lakes, lagoons, rivers and creeks by removing debris and trash from the beaches and banks of these waterways. Oceana provided them with equipment and materials. The volunteers also took notes on the cleanup which will be furnished to Ocean Conservancy to provide a snapshot of the problems caused by marine debris.

Due to flooding, cleanup efforts in Belmopan and Orange Walk Town had to be postponed until this coming weekend. The Organizations involved thank all those who participated this weekend.
