GMRC Cleans Shoreline for World Ocean Day

Poor weather conditions resulted in the shoreline cleanup for World Ocean Day being postponed to June 8th. However, the weather was more cooperative on Thursday, July 7th when 9 volunteers joined staff from the Gespe’gewaq Mi’gmaq Resource Council (GMRC) for the shoreline cleanup. The volunteers walked over 1.5 kilometers of shoreline and only 1 tire and 3 bags of trash was collected. The staff noticed the beach is cleaner than it has been in previous years. Great job on keeping our shorelines cleaner resulting in much less trash from entering the Bay and harming the fish and its habitat. We would also like to thank the Eel River Bar Habitat and Recovery team and Mariette Hachey Boudreau from the Port of Belledune for volunteering.
