Ocean Conservancy x Discovery Shark Week Cleanup - Knoxville 2019

Celebrate the kick off of Discovery Channel’s Shark Week with a cleanup !

On Saturday, July 27th, Discovery Channel is partnering with Ocean Conservancy to clean up beaches across the United States. Scientists estimate that more than 17 billion pounds (8 million metric tons) of plastic enters our ocean every year. Plastics in our ocean are a threat to marine life, from corals polyps to sharks. Over the past 33 years, Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup has brought together 13 million people from 150 countries and counting to collect over 250 million pounds of trash along our coastlines and waterways.

Join us as we give back to our favorite finned friends and keep the waters they call home free of trash.
