This fall, Disney VoluntEARS are working to protect wildlife and marine ecosystems with coastal cleanups across the globe. Thus far, cleanups have taken place in Hong Kong and Los Angeles.
The Hong Kong cleanup took place as part of 2012’s Hong Kong International Coastal Cleanup initiative, which is held September 15 to November 4. Over 100 Disney VoluntEARS participated in the event.
More recently, VoluntEARS and community members from Los Angeles collaborated with Heal the Bay to collect more than 36 pounds of trash along the coast of Will Rogers State Beach. Additional coastal cleanups are scheduled to take place later this fall in several different countries.
