Students Join Global Effort for Clean Seas

Tabor students and faculty will join the international community on Saturday to add their energy to clearing our local coastline of trash. All over the world, The Ocean Conservancy has mobilized volunteers for their Fighting for Trash Free Seas world-wide event on September 21, an effort begun more than 30 years ago to build awareness about plastics in the ocean.
 
Tabor students enjoy community service opportunities, and, as the school by the sea, we love any opportunity for our students to learn about our ocean home and to help to improve it. Our students, led by new science faculty member Tamar Cunha, will not only bag trash at Fort Phoenix in Fairhaven, but also collect data about the types of trash they find. The Ocean Conservancy will use our data in order to help identify sources of trash in the hope of determining ways to eliminate it in the future. The Tabor group will work with other community volunteers in common cause from 9 AM to 12 PM. If you would like to join in the effort, be in touch at info@taboracademy.org so we can share numbers with the organizer.
 
Tabor will host our own community effort on October 27 to do similar work at West Island Town Beach in Fairhaven. So, if you can’t help on Saturday, save the date and join us on October 27. It is a nice way to meet friends as we work together.
 
Joining with others in a global effort in our local area is an empowering opportunity to bring about widespread change. We applaud our student's engagement with the Ocean Conservancy and encourage our readers to engage in the project in their local area. Learn more on the website, here.
