9/5 CAA Taiwan Beach Cleanup


Dear Alumni,

We’d like to invite you to a beach cleanup on Saturday, September 5th at Baishawan (白沙灣). International Coastal Cleanup Day (the 3rd Saturday of September) has been changed for 2020 and September is now International Coastal Cleanup. Marine debris has become a serious problem for our environment. We know that a beach cleanup is a starting point and won't solve the problem. But the more people who see the problem can help be part of the solution. This is also a great way to go out into the community, make a difference, and enjoy the outdoors along the way.


Hope you will join us for this educational and fun event that brings us together to raise awareness about ocean conservation.
