Giving Some TLC to Our Beaches
CELEBRATING WORLD OCEAN DAY WITH A BEACH CLEANUP
As we shared on the cover, we are passionate about preserving the beautiful area we call home. One way to do this is to leave no trace when we visit our beaches, as well as pick up any debris we see while we’re there. Even the simple act of removing a plastic bottle has a difference; it means one less sea turtle or pelican will mistake it for food. World Ocean Day is on June 8, and many local organizations are participating by coordinating beach cleanups. This is a great way to give back and maintain the beautiful natural areas we all enjoy. If you and your family and friends want to get involved, here are a few local cleanups you can participate in. Coastal Conservation Association (CCA) Trash Tournament June 1–8 Various times and locations The first ever CCA Trash Tournament pits caring folks against caring folks in the battle to save our oceans. The reward for trash collectors? Cleaner beaches, the glory of knowing you contributed, and cool prizes for those who collect the most trash! The concept is similar to that of a fishing tournament, except instead of fish, you submit trash collections! Participate throughout the week and log your entries in the iAngler
app. Download the app (iAnglerTournament.com) to register or reach out to Amanda Krpan at 352-278-2708 or AKrpan@CCAFlorida.org.
