CSI member Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup wants to keep plastic out of our oceans

The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup began with single act of caring 25 years ago. Concerned about the impact of litter on wildlife, a group of Vancouver Aquarium employees banded together to clean the shores of Stanley Park. Since then, more than 1.2 million kilograms of garbage has been prevented from entering rivers, lakes and oceans across the country where it could potentially harm fish and frogs, sea birds and sea turtles.

Today is World Oceans Day, and we’re asking our community to take the pledge to protect our oceans. Please also download and share one (or more!) of the images below and ask your friends to take the pledge, too!
