Did you know that more than 80 per cent of shoreline litter starts out on land? That’s because garbage gets transported by wind and water and finds its way into our lakes and oceans.

From coast to coast to coast, Canada is bursting with natural riches, diverse species and varied ecosystems that sustain us and provide benefits essential for a healthy life, including one fifth of the earth’s freshwater. And Canadian students and schools can help protect it.

This school year, we are calling on students, educators and schools to help protect fish, turtles, birds and other wildlife that depend on the aquatic ecosystems in and around your school community. Be part of the solution by joining in our national Schoolyard Cleanup. Together, let’s stop litter in its tracks.
