Tobago is participating in the International Coastal Cleanup 2019 with a two-day clean-up campaign at eight beaches across the island.
On Day 1, the exercise will take place at Courland Bay (Plymouth/Black Rock), Little Rockly Bay (Lambeau), Minister’s Bay (Bacolet), Carapuse Bay (Belle Garden), Princess Bay (Roxborough) and Tyrrel’s Bay (Speyside).
On Day 2, cleanup activities will move to La Guirra Bay (Kilgywn/Bon-Accord) and Sandy Point Bay (Crown Point).
They are aiming to have more than 500 participants this year.
In 2018, 311 bags and close to 3,000 kilograms of waste were collected from Tobago’s beachfronts.
