Earth Day Coastal Cleanup @ Tanah Merah
In order to raise consumer awareness about the extent and impact of litter in the marine environment, the International Coastal Cleanup Singapore Coordinators have initiated a programme of Year-Round Coastal Cleanup. And as part of Earth Day celebrations, this second year-round coastal cleanup will be held at Tanah Merah, as marine life there is still fighting the effects of the 2010 oil spill.
The Cleanup is on 28th April, 8am to 12pm. Individuals interested in joining the cleanup can sign up for the mailing list by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
