Not all heroes wear caps, some wear gloves and carry a trash bag to clean up the ocean.

Written by :Thumeka Qupuna

South African Education Project participated in this year’s International Coastal Clean-up Day to expose both primary and high school learners to the importance of saving our seas as proactive action to protect marine biodiversity.

Pollution is extremely hazardous to marine life, killing thousands of creatures. International Coastal Cleanup Day encourages people to help limit this problem by cleaning up litter that has been scattered all over our oceans.

The program was facilitated by Save Our Seas Foundation and other stakeholders in which the learners were taught the importance of seas, marine life and the reasons why it is important for them to play a role in ensuring that our beaches are clean of any debris and plastics.

As part of action approach to the programme, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and bags and were handed to the learners to embark on beach clean-up. The learners will use the acquired knowledge and information as a learning outcome to protect their environment for the benefit of both current and future generation.
