Operation Rich Coast holding ‘CleanUp for the Oceans’
Operation Rich Coast, a grassroots project focused on beach and ocean cleanliness, is hosting its biggest event yet.
Saturday morning’s “National CleanUp for the Oceans” includes more than 40 locations across Costa Rica where volunteers will gather to help reduce the amount of garbage on the country’s beaches.
The majority of the volunteer sites are in Costa Rica, but Operation Rich Coast added meetups in Panama and Nicaragua “to symbolize that pollution has no borders,” according to co-founder Julie Vigneault.
Per its website, “Operation Rich Coast seeks to reduce the amount of litter that ends up in our oceans, protecting the health of all species that depend on and enjoy the sea.”
