When visiting the beach ensure you do not leave trash in the area. Oceanic habitats are endangered due to the amount of trash build up from landfill dumping. But also animals have been at risk because of trash left behind. Clean up all areas completely so the environment stays pristine.

Natural reserves are protected for turtles who lay eggs on the shore and to protect beach species as well as the natural flow of the ocean wildlife. Do not feed animals on the beach, this disrupts their diet and can make them sick. Honoring these areas and keeping them untouched by commercialization and trash will ensure the protection of beach communities.

Support Eco-Friendly Companies
