From the Greater Victoria Harbour Authority (GVHA):
It’s World Oceans Day today #Victoria! We are so excited to see you all today at Fishermans Wharf (1 Dallas Rd.) from 11:00-4:00! We want to remind you of one of our goals that we are trying to achieve through this event, which is raising money for a Seabin! 🌊
The The Seabin project‘s Seabin moves up and down with the range of tide collecting all floating rubbish. The Seabin catches an estimated 1.4 tons of floating debris per year (depending on weather and debris volumes) including micro plastics down to 2 mm small, the catch bag has a capacity of 20kg and can be changed multiple times per day.
We hope you have a great time with us today and learn about our incredible ocean!💙
