Coastweeks Beach Cleanup Seeks Volunteers

More than 1,000 Virgin Islands residents will take part in the 30th annual Ocean Conservancy International Coastal Cleanup Sept. 19 – Oct. 31, ridding the territory’s beaches of waste, from soda cans and plastic bags to tires and home appliances.

The Coastweeks cleanups on selected St. Thomas, St. Croix and St. John beaches are coordinated by the Virgin Islands Marine Advisory Services (VIMAS).  VIMAS is a division within the University of the Virgin Islands Center for Marine and Environmental Studies program. More information is available in a news release on the Media Section of the UVI website – - and from this direct link.
