The volunteer coordinators of the International Coastal Cleanup in Singapore are searching for motivated individuals who would like to contribute to the betterment of the marine environment.
Volunteers will conduct evaluations of beaches and mangroves prior to cleanups, learn about marine life, liase with Organisers, help plan workshops, process data, conduct outreach activities as well as leading by example during beach and mangrove cleanups!
We are looking for Zone Captains and Site Captains who are able to commit to our 2016 Calendar of events. Check the full calendar of dates. If you fit the bill and can make the dates, sign up to join the ICCS Otters and we will be in touch! The first briefing session for new applicants will be on Fri 05 Feb 2016 in NUS at 7.00pm. There will be second briefing date in mid-February.
We are a dedicated team who have been coordinating the International Coastal Cleanup in Singapore for more than a decade. We work with Organisers from more than 60 organisations and institutions who lead some 4,000 volunteers to the beach and mangroves of Singapore in September, and with Organisers of Year-Round Coastal Cleanups.
We keep meetings and emails to a minimum in order to sustain this effort alongside our regular jobs long-term. So to work with us, you need to be responsive and dedicated. If unfamiliar, you will be introduced to our use of digital tools and field-preparation.
If you think this sounds like something you could do, we would be most happy to welcome you!
Do sign up here by 12 Feb 2016!
See you on the beach!
