Hello Coordinators, The Scout Association is coordinating for the seventeenth year the National Coastal and Riverways Cleanup. This is in connection with the “International Coastal Cleanup” organized by Ocean Conservancy (OC) based in Washington, DC. The campaign aims to create awareness of the importance of the preservation and conservation of our coastline and Riverways.

It is estimated that over 1000 participants comprising students, youth organizations, conservation groups, NGO’s and Scouts all around Belize will join forces on Saturday October 4 to clean our coastal line, cayes and riverways of marine debris and other polluting agents that create life-threatening situations to our marine and human life. More important though, is the recording of the kind and quantity of debris collected. Once compiled, this information is used to confront polluters to work out amicable solutions to prevent further pollution.

The countrywide cleanup will begin at 9:00 a.m. and is expected to run to mid-day. The over 1000 expected Belize participants will be joining more than three quarters of a million people on the world’s coasts and waterways for the largest global volunteer land and underwater cleanup in 2008.
