As we all cope with the COVID-19 pandemic, Ocean Conservancy is encouraging everyone including our staff, partners, supporters and volunteers, to continue to practice social distancing and to follow all mandates provided by local and federal governments to ensure our health and safety. This means we are asking all cleanup event organizers to postpone their planned events until further notice and we will not be posting any cleanups on this map for the time being. Please help us as we do our part to #FlattentheCurve and limit the spread of the virus. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at [email protected]
Celebrate the 2020 International Coastal Cleanup with us in September!
Fight Ocean Trash
Every year during Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup, hundreds of thousands of volunteers comb lakes, rivers and beaches around the world for trash. Find a cleanup near you and join the movement.
Search for a location
Use the search bar to find cleanups across the globe. You can enter a street address, city, state, country or point of interest, such as a park, lake or beachfront. A successful search will provide a list of cleanups around the search query. Select a location or use the arrows to navigate through the selections.
Navigate the map
Our map is populated by two types of starfish. The large starfish labeled with a number represent an area with many cleanups. The small starfish represent the location of a specific cleanup. You can zoom in and out and drag the map to any location to find a cleanup. Click or tap on the starfish to reveal the location’s details.
