Participate to the world’s largest volunteer effort for our oceans!

 

It will soon be the end of the touristic season in Montenegro. Lots of trashes are left behind and if not picked up quickly, they will join the massive amount of trashes that are already in our oceans and getting in our food chain … For nearly three decades, volunteers with Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup® have picked up everything imaginable along the world’s shorelines. In 2015, more than 18 million pounds of trash was collected by nearly 800,000 volunteers during the International Coastal Cleanup. Montenegrin Environmental NGO’s join forces to participate this year to the International Coastal Cleanup. We need your help to keep this momentum going. Join the world’s largest volunteer effort for our ocean: come to raise awareness on the harmful effects of littering (and enjoy a day at the beach!)

 

Join the International Coastal Cleanup Day in Montenegro on the 16th of September 2017. Register today and take your friends along!
