Captain Crab Clean Beach Media & Education Campaign

Summary

This project utilizes multiple programs to combat beach litter, to raise awareness, and to educate the public about the environmental and legal consequences of littering. Litter threatens natural resources and is dangerous to marine life and local wildlife. It leads to expensive clean-up costs and causes unattractive and unhealthy shorelines. As an ongoing project, many changes have occurred over the last few years. Captain Crab and his friends have begun visiting approximately 26,000 fourth-grade students at over 200 elementary schools throughout the four-county region. Each year Captain Crab meets new students, making the funding that is received through the GLO crucial to the project.
