2017 Algeria (LC)

In Algeria, the Association Ecologica de SKIKDA, in collaboration with the Directorate of the Environment of Skikda and young volunteers, organised a beach cleaning action on the Molo de Stora beach, on 26 September 2017. The aim of this action was to raise awareness of the population of the issues of safeguarding the coastal and marine environments, threatened by waste, mainly plastics. 30 bags of waste, including plastic bottles and cans, as well as a lot of macro waste such as lids, cigarette butts, etc. were collected. The association has also planned other actions since at the end of the summer season the beaches are covered with waste.

To celebrate ten years of its activities, the National Commissariat of the Coast of the Wilaya of Tipasa took advantage of the Coast Day to organize a photographic exhibition. It was presented by the Head of Delegation.
