Zakaki Marsh Cleanup
November 18 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm
Hello! Our next clean-up event will be on Sunday, November 18th @ Zakaki Marsh in Limassol from 10:30 am – 12:30 pm.
Meeting Point – As you drive down to road leading to Lady’s Mile Beach, you will find us on the right-hand side of the road after the bird hide.
Following our clean-up, we will make our way towards the bird hide to enjoy the birds of the marsh. BirdLife Cyprus will provide telescopes and binoculars, as well as bird guides and other information material. Zakaki marsh is the remnant of a once larger wetland. The area is especially important during winter and spring migration and one can see many water birds such as herons, wintering ducks and waders. The site is also one of the few where the Ferruginous Duck, a species of global conservation concern, breeds.
We will provide:
- Recycling/trash bags
- First aid kit
- Face masks (for those who prefer to wear.)
- A truck
- Garbage bins
- Garden & latex gloves, however, we recommend that you bring your own gloves if you can just in case we run out of your size (gloves that are a thicker material to prevent any potential injuries).
If you will be participating, we only recommend the following:
- To wear comfortable clothes and shoes.
- A jacket just in case of wind.
- For anyone with long hair, don’t forget to bring a hair tie.
- Bring your friends and family!
Volunteers are a critical part of keeping our beaches clean and safe. We are always looking for volunteers to help us at our clean-up events. Please share this post with your friends to help spread the word! The more people we have, the more trash we can collect ☺
We’re looking forward to seeing all the volunteers from previous clean-ups, and meeting all new volunteers for this one. However, please keep in mind that you don’t need us to go outside and have your own clean-up. If you ever see something where it shouldn’t be, pick it up! You’ll be surprised how much good you can do in just 5 minutes.
If you have any questions, please send us an email at [email protected] and we will respond to you as soon as possible.
Let’s make Zakaki Marsh shine!!
