Coastal Connections – Episode 4 – Do you know what’s in your harbour?

Whether its seeing a cleaner harbour bottom or having a safer swim, Shawn and Staunene remind us that the oceans are our responsibility and they share the importance of cleaning up our oceans one harbour at a time! Removing litter from one beach or one harbour may seem insignificant in the grand scheme of things but the fact is, the more clean ups we do, the more awareness we can bring towards this issue and the more we can remediate and prevent more trash from piling up! Clean ups show us what the most common sources of pollution which can inform policies to target specific items and catalyze innovative alternatives and solutions that support local communities and regional economies.
