By BBN Staff: A beach marine litter survey and clean-up will be held on Sunday, September 1, 2019 starting at 7:30 a.m. at Belizean Beach (just outside of Belize City).
This will be done as part of the on-going collaboration between the Department of the Environment (DOE), within the Ministry responsible for Environment, and the Centre for Environment, Fisheries, and Aquaculture Centre (CEFAS) under the Commonwealth Litter Programme (CLiP) being funded by the Government of the United Kingdom.
The survey/clean-up will be conducted by local participants, including the Belize Defence Force Cadets, Belize Audubon Society and Belize High School, as well as the Chief Executive Officer of the Ministry responsible for Environment and the Chief Environmental Officer.
As part of his official visit to Belize, the Permanent Under-Secretary of State (PUS) at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office of the United Kingdom, Sir Simon McDonald will participate in the beach clean-up/survey along with the British High Commissioner for Belize.
This survey assists to fulfill the DOE’s mandate to reducing and controlling marine pollution; and the Ministry responsible for Environment’s commitment and on-going activities to reduce plastic pollution in the marine environment, such as single-use plastics, thus ensuring a clean and healthy environment for all Belizeans.
