Jeffreys Bay – Grab a plastic bag and set off to Main Beach – not for fun in the sun, but for a mass clean-up today.
Sea Shepherd South Africa, in conjunction with Kouga Municipality, is set to hold a massive beach clean-up at the main beach from 10:00 to 12:00 on Saturday, September 21 – all in celebration of International Coastal Clean-Up Day.
Founded in 1977 by Captain Paul Watson, Sea Shepherd is an international, non-profit marine conservation organisation that engages in action campaigns to defend wildlife and conserve and protect the world’s oceans from illegal exploitation and environmental destruction.
Locally, they have a presence in Jeffreys Bay, KwaZulu-Natal, Cape Town, Johannesburg and Pretoria.
All volunteers are welcome.
The organisation will provide bags and gloves on the day.
