Make A Difference For Our Oceans - uMdloti, Ballito, Salt Rock, Sheffield

Thanks for popping in.... we may be biased but the KZN North Coast has some of the most gorgeous, diverse, ecologically rich bits of coastline in the country. Join our mission to make sure our kids get to enjoy the beaches, the dolphins, the corals, the rich rock pools, the life, the place we all love when they are older. This project is still in it's early days and a lot we want to achieve, this is a start, a start of something that people can easily get involved in, something that can change our false perceptions about marine wildlife and the oceans, something that can help us understand our challenges and fix them in new ways. 

"Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could do only a little." - Edmund Burke

Our goal is to rid our beached of one million pieces of trash within a year. With 2000 of the good North Coast folks out there taking part, once a week, this can easily be achieved. And we don't mean "big stuff" - it's the small, tiny pieces of plastic that can fit into your pocket that makes the biggest impact.

Got Some Skills & Free Time? Our Oceans Could Do With Your Help

This is a new project, brand spanking new. Getting 2000 people to commit to picking up 10 pieces of trash a week is the easy part. We want to grow this community and ultimately create an organisation that can make a difference here on the North Coast for our oceans.
