Litter Reduction is one of the four main goals that FRIENDS has chosen for our 2012-2014 strategic plan. By reducing the amount of litter on our island we can also reduce the threat of pollution to our local resources, habitats, and the animals that live within them.
FRIENDS has chosen to address this issue by targeting:
- Coastal litter through community based cleanups and education
- Highway litter on Ernest Dean Highway (between Marsh Harbour and Snake Cay) through a litter awareness campaign and highway cleanups
- Assessment of program success through standardized data collection
How you can help:
Make sure your trash ends up in the proper receptacle, and encourage your friends to do the same.
