Aljezur Joins Surfrider For Worldwide Beach Clean

by on Friday 20th March, 2009   1765 Views

**For the 14th year running, Surfrider Foundation Europe is organising the “Ocean Initiatives” a major eco-friendly event devoted to the protection of our coastline, lakes and rivers.**

~The Ocean Initiatives in 2008:~

Record numbers of participants: more than 15,000 volunteers, including 3,500 schoolchildren, gathered together over a weekend.

A global dimension: 335 sites cleaned up in 15 countries with, for the first time, the official participation of the worldwide Surfrider network.

From the stream to the beach: first edition of the operation on lakes and rivers. With 90% of ocean pollution coming from the land, it is crucial that the whole water cycle be taken into account.

**This year Aljezur is getting involved.  We hope YOU can to!
