What's It About?
The International Coastal Cleanup Singapore (ICCS) is an annual event coordinated by the Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research, NUS and part of the international event coordinated by The Ocean Conservancy in Washington, USA.
This event, the world's largest one-day volunteer effort, involves some 400 000 people in 70-100 countries who gather to clean up trash at beaches, lakes, oceans and mangroves all over the world.
This cleanup is more than just collecting and removing trash!!
The trash collected is categorized and recorded, and the consolidated data is sent to the Ocean Conservancy under the United Nation to be analyzed. The results of the analysis become a powerful tool in finding the sources of marine debris, helping to identify solutions, and developing effective pollution control strategies to help prevent the problem.
So, don't hestitate, help protect our marine life.
Remember it's everybody's business! Be an ICCS-NUS volunteer.
