Kenya conservation of aquatic resources with other stakeholders conducted international coastal cleanup on 15th September 2018 .official launching of the exercise was at jomo Kenyatta public beach. Over 2000 people participated in the event. Marine litter is harmful to marine environments and wildlife, especially marine plastic debris which has been documented as harming nearly 700 species of wildlife.
Every year, an estimated 8 million metric tons of plastic waste flows into the ocean. It’s bad news for the health of this vital natural resource, the iconic ocean wildlife we all love as well as our own health, safety and prosperity.
KCAR advocates for healthy oceans, keeping our ocean free from trash is one of the easiest ways to improve the health of our ocean. From participating in beach cleanups to creating less trash, we can all play a part in keeping our ocean clean and free of trash.
