International Coastal Cleanup Day in Israel

Israel is gearing up for International Coastal Cleanup Day , organized by the Ocean Conservancy, and slated to take place on Saturday, September 25, 2010.

In Israel, Cleanup Day will be expanded to Cleanup Week and will take place between September 19 - 25, 2010. Israel's Clean Coast Program aims to bring at least 2,500 volunteers to 25 coastal cleanup sites during this period to mark the event.

This year's worldwide event marks 25 years to the program and is dedicated to the theme "International Coastal Cleanup: A 25-Year Sea of Change." It is the world's largest volunteer effort on behalf of ocean health.

Israel's Ministry of Environmental Protection has called on students, adults, youth groups, teachers and others to join this year's coastal cleanup week, in coordination with the "Coast Watch." This cadre of volunteers was especially set up under the Clean Coast Program to help preserve the cleanliness of Israel's beaches.
