Since 2013, Delphinus has been committed to cleaning the coast of Quintana Roo. Over the past 3 years, we have organized 18 beach cleanups, recollecting a total of 4,414 kg of waste, thanks to the participation of 2,581 volunteers.
The beach cleanups are essentially educational and encourage the active participation of the local population in the conservation of the oceans through activities of environmental service.
Among the organizations supporting the cleaning project are the Network of Environmental Educators, the National Commission for Protected Natural Areas,Ocean Conservancy, Isla Contoy National Park and the National Reef Park of Puerto Morelos.
By participating in beach cleanups, volunteers learn about the extent to which humanity is causing environmental damage to the marine ecosystems. The waste we pick up is a result of years of, indiscriminately, throwing trash at sea. Reducing our consumption, recycling and getting rid of waste adequately are some of the solutions that could help change this tendency.
