Join us in the Clean up campaign

Join us in the Clean up campaign

Abu Dhabi’s coastline is in dire need of your help. Waste from construction sites, boats and from the land have littered our coastline, not only causing an eye sore but also endangering precious marine life such as dugongs and sea turtles, our health and our fragile environment. Abu Dhabi Government is really very concerned about this issue.

There is still time to show your commitment.

Join us in the Clean up campaign as we move along the Abu Dhabi coast in our endeavour to keep our coast clean

How do we join in this time?

Join us in our Clean-Up Campaign on Saturday February 16th, 2008 at the Public beach at Mirfa in the western region

A tent will be set up at the site. Gloves, trash bags and refreshments will be available. The clean up will start at 8.30Am in the morning. The clean up will go on for about 2 hours.

Interested volunteers from Abu Dhabi will collect at 6.30am at Spinneys parking lot in Khalidiyah. The clean up site is at Mirfa public beach. The plan is for all volunteers to collect and move together from Spinneys Khalidiya in Abu Dhabi. Buses are being arranged for all those who don’t have cars to commute.It would take about one and half an hour to reach Mirfa coast in the western region. After the event, volunteers who traveled by bus will be dropped back at Spinneys supermarket.
