Annual Coastal Cleanup

Taiwan is an island state, but we are all strangers to the ocean. Knowledge of the general public about the ocean is dominated by “seafood culture” but lacks “marine culture”.  Taiwan coastlines are spectacular and not at all second to any other attraction in the world, but that marine garbage is a problem everyone tends to overlook. We the staffers work as a team to make an effort towards a sustainable marine environment.

The coastal cleanup successfully completed on September 2021.

Following garbage segregation, we found much to be one-time-use items such as straws, cups, plastic bottles, cigarette butts and styrofoam buoy used by the fishery industry, the most dangerous among them, medical injection needles, gas tanks, and lighters.
 

We look forward to having more volunteers to joining us next year to maintaining a sustainable environment.
