World Oceans Day 2019 in Koh Sdach and Koh Touch, Cambodia

Junio 07 2019 @ 2:00 PM - Junio 08 2019 @ 12:00 PM

Fauna & Flora International’s Coastal & Marine Conservation Project, Cambodia’s Fisheries Administration, Kuda Divers and the Song Saa Foundation are proud to be collaborating in the celebration of World Ocean’s Day “Gender & Oceans” on June 7th-8th 2019 in Koh Rong and Koh Sdach.

This will involve several events with local communities, including mangrove planting, beach clean-ups, and a guided snorkel. Through this, we hope to promote the role of gender in marine resource management, the importance of reducing marine plastic waste and how to safely handle and release sea turtles. We hope that island communities, CFi members, tourists and local authorities will be inspired through engaging with marine and ocean conservation in Cambodia.
FFI partner The Song Saa Foundation will be running a parallel event for the Prek Svay community in Koh Rong.

International Coastal Cleanup - Ocean Conservancy

Harnessing the Power of People to Fight Ocean Trash

The International Coastal Cleanup began more than 30 years ago, when communities rallied together with the common goal of collecting and documenting the trash littering their coastline. The movement was catalyzed by the passion and spirit of two committed individuals. Back in 1986, Linda Maraniss moved to Texas from Washington, DC, where she had been working for Ocean Conservancy.
