The beaches are calling for help and YLE Camp raises the rescue flag in Marsa Matrouh
In the framework of preserving marine life and the environment, this camp is part of a series of environmental camps conducted by the YLE Foundation in November. The camp aims to conduct 5 cleanup campaigns on 3 beaches in Marsa Matrouh city: Mataro Public Beach, Al Fayrouz Beach and Rommel Beach.
After three months of summer, these beaches urgently needed assistance in protecting them from pollution. The camp involved several members and 50 volunteers from the Foundation to carry out clean-up campaigns to preserve these precious natural gems and address the impact of climate change.
The first beaches: Al Fayrouz and Mataro Public Beach, in line with the agreements of #Cop23 related to the Mediterranean COP, to be held under the Barcelona Convention for the protection of the Mediterranean Sea.
The Second beach: Rommel, aiming to preserve marine life and prepare for #COP28.
YLE aims to collect over 2 tons of single-use plastic, metal containers, paper, and cardboard covering the beaches, impacting their natural beauty and marine life. The foundation continues working for cleaner and more attractive beaches for our current and future generations.
