International Coastal Cleanup

The Division of Coastal Resources Management would like to invite you to join this year’s International Coastal Cleanup (ICC) on Saturday, September 15, 2018!

Every year, the CNMI joins the word wide effort to fight ocean pollution by collecting and documenting the trash littering our coastlines and waterways. Since 2016, the CNMI has removed 7,254 pounds of trash, covered 138 miles, and documented 51,519 items of trash into Ocean Conservancy’s global ocean trash database.

Participating organizations will receive a commemorative flag and the TOP 3 organizations with the most weight collected will receive a prize!

Download the 2018 ICC Info Kit which includes an ICC fact sheet, sign-up form and a list of sites available for the cleanup. Also, check out the how-to-guide to downloading and using the Ocean Conservancy’s Clean Swell App for those that are interested in going paperless and collecting their data electronically.

To participate in the 2018 International Coastal Cleanup, sign-up forms may be emailed to Mallory Muña or Colleen Flores, or submitted to the DCRM office no later than Friday, August 31st, 2018.
