Collaborating to boost cleanups, conservation and education

 

The Parley Global Cleanup Network is an alliance of organizations working together to protect marine environments from the threat of plastic pollution. Through collaborative cleanups, we intercept plastic waste from beaches, remote islands, rivers, mangroves, high seas, and in coastal communities. Parley cleanup collaborators and volunteers share our vision for solutions and champion the Parley AIR Strategy.

Parley Mexico is currently operating in several locations across the Yucatan Peninsula, and is working in collaboration with more than 30 local groups, government institutions, universities, social organizations, and the private sector. As a hotspot for biodiversity, the interception of marine plastic pollution is crucial to the survival of endangered species.

 
 

“Intercepting plastic pollution in the most important beaches for sea turtle nesting in the Yucatan Peninsula and the surrounding islands helps to reduce the threat of rising temperatures in the nests— supporting the protection of endangered species such as the hawksbill turtle and green turtle.”

– Judith Morales, Regional Manager of Parley Mexico

Cleanup Efforts

Parley has been working in collaboration with local organizations and volunteers to organize cleanup initiatives in Mexico, with a focus on the Yucatan Peninsula.

 
 
 

Mangroves & Cenotes

In collaboration with the Benito Juarez Municipality and other local organizations we are intercepting plastic and other solid waste from cenotes, important ecosystems that provide habitat in the coastal city of Cancun to wildlife like resident and migratory birds, crocodiles and are the entrance to the underground water system directly interconnected with the coral reefs.

 
 
 

Education

As part of our global Parley AIR (Avoid, Intercept, Redesign) strategy, Parley is leading education initiatives with Mexican youth. In collaboration with the UNICARIBE we have also started a plastic and microplastic monitoring program.
