On Sunday, May 20, The Animal Fund (TAF) will be holding a fun-filled, informative and educative afternoon around ocean protection and plastic pollution on the beach in Nice.

The event runs from 2:30 pm until 5:30 pm between Ruhl Beach and Le Galet (facing McDonald’s) on Promenade des Anglais. There is no charge and a snack will be provided.

TAF’s long-term mission is to end the use of plastic bottles by informing people about the deadly waste overtaking our oceans.

“We want to bring together children and adults to participate in our ambition towards making our planet a cleaner and healthier place to live in, through fun, instructive and educative activities,” the organisers said.

Plastic pollution is one of the most serious threats to the ocean as it does not biodegrade – it breaks down progressively into smaller pieces, but never disappears. As a result, marine life is rapidly dying out. Therefore, the non-profit organisation is to raise awareness on the consequences of plastic pollution and to promote a healthier lifestyle for our planet.

“It is important that we are aware of how our habits impact the ecosystem and how we can prevent further damage and danger to the ocean,” TAF explained. “This campaign brings together people from different age groups and different backgrounds but we are all fighting for the same outcome: a cleaner ocean with an abundance of marine life.”
