Great Canadian Shore Cleanup

A joint conservation initiative between the Vancouver Aquarium and WWF Canada, the 
Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup™, aims to promote understanding of shoreline litter issues by engaging Canadians to rehabilitate shoreline areas through cleanups.

The Shoreline Cleanup, presented by Loblaw Companies Limited, is one of the largest direct action environmental events in Canada, engaging tens of thousands of participants annually across the nation. Each year, public support and general awareness of the program has increased, inspiring more volunteers to join and make a difference.

We hope you will join us in making this year's shoreline cleanup the biggest yet.
