Oceana Belize celebrated its 27th Anniversary of National Coastal and Riverways Clean Up and on Saturday, October 6, 2018, the organization partnered up with the Kids in Action group of San Pedro, Ambergris Caye and cleaned from Palapa Bar all the way up to Boca del Rio Park.

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.

To help with cleanup year round, the best way to tackle garbage is not to create it. Oceana encourages the public to reduce, reuse & recycle through steps such as these:

*Encourage food vendor to use biodegradable containers & utensils instead of Styrofoam

*Encourage your local store to use biodegradable packaging/shopping bags & take your own reusable bag when shopping; and

*Organize a recycling program at your workplace or school to collect plastic & other recyclable materials.

After the clean up the children were treated to some splashing fun in the sea. Here is a cool video on how the day went....enjoy!
