Nauru Awareness and Beach Clean-up Campaign
by Nauru - Department of Commerce, Industry and Environment (Government)
Nauru is committed to preventing and reducing marine pollution through a one week nation-wide awareness and beach clean-up campaign. The objective of the campaign is to reduce land based pollution and litter on our beaches by raising awareness to inform the public about the problems related to marine litter. This nation-wide campaign will focus on raising awareness on the impact of pollution, particularly plastics on the marine life and the environment, to prevent pollution and influence a positive change in the culture of littering.
