Trinity River Elm Fork Clean-Up

  • California Crossing Park 1775 California Crossing Road Dallas, TX (map)

When unaddressed, litter pollution becomes an added pressure on urban wildlife. Fishing lines and six-pack rings entangle limbs, cigarette butts poison, aluminum cans become razor-sharp traps, and ingested plastics block intestines. Waterways extend the issue globally with plastics flowing into oceans killing 1.5 million marine animals every year including 1 million seabirds and 100,000 marine mammals like dolphins, manatees, and seals. A recent study highlighted in the Washington Post estimates 90% of all seabirds and 52% of all sea turtles have ingested plastics. No strategy to save animals is complete without a focus on litter pollution. Dallas Zoo and other area conservation organizations like Groundwork Dallas are mobilizing to address this issue. Join us!
