Haulover Bayside with Sereia Films | International Coastal Cleanup 2021
Come be part of the solution! Join us for a clean-up for International Coastal Cleanup Day 2021 - the world’s largest, one-day volunteer effort to clean our oceans and waterway.
Spearheaded globally by the Ocean Conservancy, VolunteerCleanup.org organizes Miami Dade County’s local participation in this worldwide event with 45+ simultaneous shoreline cleanups around the county. The Miami-Dade ICC is made possible by the generous support of our tidal sponsor Covanta, with additional support from Banesco USA, Blackstone Charitable Foundation, Miami-Dade County RER-DERM, Pubbelly Sushi, WPLG Local 10, and with special thanks to the Benjamin & Gloria Joannou, Jr. Family Conservation Fund.
We’ll be meeting in Haulover Park, on the Bayside (WEST side of A1A), to clean up any debris before it gets into our waterways. This event is great for families, friends, and coworkers.
We’ll provide: water, buckets, gloves, community service hours and souvenir tote bag with this year’s marine animal theme, the Octopus! This year's shirts are available for purchase here!
You provide: you and a friend, a reusable cup/bottle for water, sturdy closed-toed shoes
- Download the Ocean Conservancy’s CleanSwell app to participate in the Citizen Science activity to log, tally and measure the impact of your cleanup. It is easier and more fun than using the paper data cards!
- A paper waiver for Miami-Dade county Parks will be required on the day of the event. ** However, if you are under 18 and coming without a parent or guardian, you must have a parent/guardian print and sign the waiver HERE in advance, and bring it with you to the cleanup.
About International Coastal Cleanup:
Scientists estimate that more than 17 billion pounds of plastic enters our ocean every year threatening marine life from corals polyps to sharks, the health of people, and local economies.
Over the past 36 years, Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup has brought together nearly 13 million people from over 150 countries to collect nearly 250 million pounds of trash along our coastlines and waterways. Every year during Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup, volunteers comb lakes, rivers and beaches around the world for trash picking up everything imaginable along the world’s shorelines: cigarette butts, food wrappers, abandoned fishing gear and even automobiles and kitchen appliances.
By volunteering at ICC, you will be actively participating in a global citizen science project, not only by removing marine debris, but by also cataloguing and tallying what you find using the Ocean Conservancy’s data collection cards or Clean Swell app. The resulting item-by-item, location-by-location Ocean Trash Index that Ocean Conservancy compiles each year provides the only global snapshot of the marine debris littering coasts and waterways around the world.
