On 13 May 2018, Calao Luxembourg has performed its monthly beach cleaning in Shark Bay, Sal, Cabo Verde.
A group of volunteers from Espargos helped us during the operation to collect overall more than 400 Kgs of marine waste.
We would like to thank all the volunteers for their precious help.
Our action was covered in Cabo Verde’s press:
