Our Trash Pick-Ups
Every month the CRC and Projects Abroad come together to lead a trash clean-up on the Placencia Peninsula. In recent years, more scientific studies are illustrating the harm trash does to the health of the environment, the wildlife and surrounding communities. A clean environment is beneficial to the entire ecosystem, and who doesn’t love a clean beach or community! We understand that every little bit counts and hope that our efforts inspire others the value of removing trash from the environment as well as properly disposing of trash (and now recycling!), as doing so has multiple benefits from making the community healthier to saving wildlife that would otherwise become ill or die from these man-made items.
Clean-ups happen 1/month on a Saturday. We seek donations for gloves, trash bags, and snacks for participants (particularly the youth!). If you wish to join, we would appreciate your help, however if donating your time is not a possibility, then we could always use trash bag, glove, and snack donations.
To get involved please contact us!
Don’t live on or near the peninsula? Why not join Founding Director Dr. Marisa Tellez in her daily Good Morning Crocin’ Beach Clean-ups! Each morning, Dr. Tellez takes 2-10min to clean up the beach, once a thriving nesting ground for crocodiles and turtles. Be a Wildlife and Environmental Champion and join the efforts of the CRC and let’s clean our beaches and communities!
