Volunteers of the Month
We wouldn't be here if it wasn't without the help of the incredible volunteers and today we would like to give an extra special thanks to our volunteers Nicole Coppens & William Tchang, who have been with us since the beginning and have been the soul of our education and outreach sessions.
In their own words:
"The first time we set foot on Gran Canaria, we fell in love with the Island and decided to spend our retirement years here rather than in our cold and grey Belgium. A paradise island … except for one thing: Trash, Trash, Trash everywhere! We are convinced that education is the most important thing, which is why we joined Oceans4Life Educators Team. And, as kids love Super Heroes, we created Captain Rubbish, the Robot. He talks, sings, dances, and teaches kids how to take care of the environment. Reduce, Reuse and Recycle is his slogan. Kids love him so much that he now has a little brother. We and our two Robots dream of a waste free environment and are striving for it … even if our action is only a drop in the Ocean."
