Beach Clean up by Colégio Salesiano at Aracaju, Brazil

World Clean Rivers and Beaches Day was celebrated on Sunday, September 17 in every country in the world. The aim is to raise awareness about the conservation and sustainable use of oceans, seas and marine resources.

The Aquatic Mammals Foundation carried out the 8th edition of the beach clean-up in Mosqueiro. Class leaders from Colégio Salesiano, Aracaju, Brazil, accompanied by the teaching team and biology teachers, took part in the initiative.

The students collected plastic, glass and other improperly discarded waste from the beach. The clean-up effort was very important to reaffirm the importance of leaving only footprints on the beach and not litter.
