12,000 lbs Debris Removed from Jamaica Bay

Jamaica Bay Cleanup

On April 22, 2012, volunteers of the International WeLoveU Foundation removed more than 12,000 pounds of debris including tires, metallic objects, trash and much more from the Jamaica Bay shoreline. The effort was part of the global Clean WORLD Movement to protect the natural environment and leave a better world for tomorrow’s descendants.

The effects of human activity on one of New York’s richest wetlands has threatened the ecosystem, productivity and wildlife habitat since the nineteenth century. Widespread pollution and debris has clogged the coast and WeLoveU volunteers helped to remove much of the unseen damage and debris.
