Project Details


South Africa










You can fund the removal of verified pounds of trash from a beach or ocean. We have partnered with local cleanup organizations who regularly lead groups of volunteers to remove trash from beaches and oceans in Cape Town, South Africa.


Ocean trash can kill wildlife and damage fragile marine ecosystems. It is estimated that there are 150 million metric tons of plastic in the ocean. The global share of marine fish stocks that are within biologically sustainable levels declined from 90 percent in 1974 to 69 percent in 2013. Global trends point to continued deterioration of coastal waters due to pollution and eutrophication. Without concerted efforts, coastal eutrophication (i.e., excessive richness of nutrients water, frequently due to runoff from the land, which causes death of animal life) is expected to increase in 20 percent of large marine ecosystems by 2050.


To complete this impact event, SeaTheBiggerPicture & Oceano Reddentes coordinated and led groups of volunteers to remove the trash from Monwabisi Beach around Cape Town, South Africa. On 6th of August 2019, 192 volunteers have cleared 661 kg (1547 lb) pounds of ocean trash. This is the equivalent of 1 Hooded Seal & 1 Monk Seal.
