Karwar Beach - International Coastal Cleanup

There is a four kms. long beach in Karwar city. It has become dirty due to throwing of waste plastic and other non organic material. So also the Sea throws up a lot of things as there is a ocean going vessel port nearby.

Whether you live near the coast or thousands of miles inland, we are all connected to the ocean. It drives and moderates our climate, it helps provide the water we drink, the air we breathe, and much of the food we eat. The ocean also absorbs much of the pollution we generate. And trash that falls from our hands is one of the most pervasive pollution problems facing our world's ocean.

But it doesn't have to be…keeping our ocean free from trash is one of the easiest things we can do to help protect it.

In partnership with organizations and individuals across the globe, Ocean Conservancy's International Coastal Cleanup engages people to remove trash and debris from the world's beaches and waterways, identify the sources of debris, and change the behaviors that cause marine debris in the first place.

Join us this September 19th : Sign up for a Cleanup near you and get involved today!

I'm so glad Karwaris have taken the initiative. I also think that Karwar because of this naval base and immigration is growing so rapidly. I felt so sad to see old houses being broken to make way for new concret hotels near the beach. While tourism is important I think development should be planned and eco-freidnly buildings should be erected and waste must be managed. arwar was so beautiful when I wa sa child and even more when my father was there fifity years ago, so I feel its time it reclaims its past glory - a developed city but in a good way.
