Clean Coast Bonaire
Marine pollution, Plastic pollution, Beach cleanups
Clean Coast Bonaire organizes monthly coastal clean ups combined with citizen science, using the OSPAR Marine Litter Monitoring protocol to collect data along with marine debris. Cleanups are generally scheduled for the 2nd Sunday of the month, with volunteers collecting and analysing the litter washed up on the island's beaches and coves. Initiated in 2018 by Boneiru Duradero and WWF-NL, Clean Coast Bonaire participates in regional conversations regarding harmonization of marine litter monitoring. See the website for further info about the work being done co-ordinating this ongoing effort to combat marine litter.
