Information Transfer and Outreach Program

Information Transfer and Outreach Program


GCMP’s goal is to enhance community knowledge in the protection and conservation of Guam’s natural resources through various events. The GCMP coordinates and participates in a variety of outreach and education activities, such as the International Coastal Cleanup, the Kika Clearwater Summer Camp, Guardians of the Reef, watershed hikes, nature walks, tree plantings, school presentations, service learning, and other environmental stewardship activities. These programs are aimed at raising awareness of the importance of Guam’s coastal resources, the various threats to the health of these resources, and actively engage the community in activities that reduce these threats and directly improve the health and beauty of Guam’s landscape from ridge to reef.

Kika Clearwater's Summer Camp

 

Kika camp is a summer program sponsored by the Guam Coastal Management Program that provides students from the 3rd to 7th grade with a ridge to reef experience. GCMP hosts twenty five children each in three separate sessions. The goal of this camp is to foster environmental awareness and stewardship within the youth of our communities in the hopes of building a better future.

During the camp we tour a variety of sites throughout the island.  Participants will learn about aquifers, invasive species, erosion, marine protected areas, and much more. The culmination of the week of summer camp ends with a tour of Guam’s bird sanctuary found on Cocos Island.

Registration will open sometime in the summer. Spots go quickly so be sure to keep a close eye on our website for announcements on the opening of registration. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us at 475-9673 or at Patrick.keeler@bsp.guam.gov

INTERNATIONAL COASTAL CLEANUP

 

2017 ICC

International Coastal Cleanup was founded by the Ocean Conservancy in 1986. “For the past 30 years, Ocean Conservancy has inspired millions of volunteers, as well as industry players, the world over to take action by removing and recording trash during our International Coastal Cleanup. This event has been one of Ocean Conservancy’s hallmarks, growing from 12 sites along the Texas coast to more than 6,000 sites in more than 100 countries.”(Ocean Conservancy)

 

Guam first joined in this worldwide effort to prevent pollution on October 14, 1995 with three sites: Ylig Bay, Agat Shore, and Dungca’s Beach and with only 450 volunteers. Guam is now in its 22nd annual cleanup and has grown since 1995, with over 29 sites and over 4,000 volunteers.

 

Every third Saturday of September, Guam host its largest island cleanup and along with the rest of the World participates in the International Coastal Cleanup sponsored by the Ocean Conservancy. This event is voluntarily led by the Bureau of Statistics and Plans and is a whole island effort with volunteers from federal agencies and local government agencies, private businesses and non-profit organizations, and many individual volunteers.
