Ocean Wise Shoreline Cleanup

The Ocean Wise Shoreline Cleanup (previously the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup) is one of the largest conservation programs in Canada. Shoreline cleanups provide an opportunity to take-action and make a positive impact in our community by helping reduce the amount of litter that ends up in our oceans. The data collected during cleanups provides Ocean Wise with essential information for addressing pollution at its source.

Lead a Cleanup

Shoreline cleanups take place any time of year—anywhere that land connects with water, including creeks, streams, rivers, oceans and even storm drains. Every cleanup makes a positive impact on shorelines, whether you have a team of a few people or a few hundred. 

Everything you need to know about leading your own cleanup is available through Ocean Wise Shoreline Cleanup. We will provide gloves, bags, and litter-collection tools for your cleanup.
