Located in South Chennai, the beaches of Neelankarai are few of the unexplored jewels of the city’s coastline. The word ‘Neelankarai’ translates to ‘Blue Shore’ as its light blue waters crashes on to the sand. It is also known to host several turtles during nesting season.
The Chinna Neelankarai Beach is one such a stretch in the area. This beach is well-known as it is quite famous for its fishing practices. Over the years, waste started to get generated due to an increase in human activity at this beach.
Over 10 volunteers and local residents joined us on the 9th of April 2021 to take action against the situation at the Chinna Neelankarai Beach. Take a look at all that happened!
In a matter of just couple of hours, a total of 260 kg of waste and glass bottles were removed by our volunteers!
We thank all those who joined us in an effort to protect our beaches!
