Why are habitat clean-ups important?

Canada is currently listed as the 8th worst country in managing its waste. The waste that ends up in the natural environment, like parks and shorelines, can cause a host of problems for wildlife and the ecosystem. We must clean and preserve these locations and teach youth why waste (plastic waste, in particular) is a significant problem. We need to address the systemic issues with waste production and management within Canada. To do this, we need help from everyone - from big businesses to individual teachers, educators, and youth group leaders like you and your students!

Habitat clean-ups offer an excellent, hands-on learning experience that will enable students to learn about waste management in a fun and safe environment while simultaneously helping make their community and cities a better and healthier place to live!
