Coastal Cleanup a Success
The Loveland Living Planet Aquarium recently participated in the International Coastal Cleanup,a global event that mobilizes hundreds of thousands of people to help keep our waters clean. The coastal cleanup is led by Ocean Conservancy, which helps bring people together to find solutions for protecting the world’s water.
Clean water is important for the health and safety of all the animals that live in our oceans, lakes, rivers and streams. Our efforts focus on keeping Utah’s waterways clear of trash.
So far this year, Loveland Living Planet Aquarium has had 568 volunteers who have cleaned up 1,790 pounds of trash at 18 locations around Salt Lake City. This included the participation in the International Coastal Cleanup.
We greatly appreciate everyone who participated in the cleanups, and we look forward to working with you again during future cleanups.
