Shoreline Makeover: International Coastal Clean-up 2023

International Coastal Cleanup Day is a global event that has been running for more than 35 years. Volunteers all around the world engage and encourage their communities to take action by removing trash from beaches or oceans, identifying the sources of the litter, and inspiring change in beating marine debris pollution. Last year, Reef Check Malaysia had almost 10,000 volunteers and picked up an astounding 23,000 kg of trash! Julian Hyde, the General Manager of Reef Check Malaysia, joins us to share more about the idea behind coastal cleanups, but also to discuss why plastic debris remains a growing concern in the marine environment, how we can continue to tackle the plastic waste pollution, and why Malaysia should aspire towards having no more beach clean-ups in the future.
