An attempt is being made to break the world record for the largest-ever underwater cleanup next month in Portugal.
The attempt on September 24th will take place off Sesimbra, Portugal, according to its organizers, a nonprofit group called Oceanum Liberandum:
“This is why we fight. For an ocean that preserves its ecosystem. An ocean that has no more plastic than fish. An ocean with vibrant colors and species that many are still unaware of. On the 24th of September we will all fight to leave this mark. In Sesimbra, for more than a record, for a living ocean for the next generations.”
