Vancouver Beach Clean-up at Jericho

As a coastal city, Vancouver and it’s residents are a continual contribution to the ocean’s marine debris and pollution levels. SurfRider, an international non-profit organization  dedicated to protecting oceans, hosts monthly beach clean-ups around the Vancouver area.

In November 2014 SurfRider Vancouver and an army of volunteers combed through the sand and dove the bay at Jericho Beach to pick-up trash. I spoke to volunteers and members of SurfRider, find out what they had to say about the importance of beach maintenance.
