Mostly, the beauty in Sri Lanka lies in the coastal area and the surrounding ocean. Though, we are fortunate to have such an attractive environment around us, unfortunately, the pollution of Sri Lanka’s ocean has been increased in the last few years. This non-degradable waste and poisonous chemical addition to the ocean maximize the marine pollution, resulting some marine species to be categorized as endangered, while threatening the whole life in the ocean. The most recent incident that hit us greatly as a result of this is, during the end of this March, it was announced that the Great Barrier Coral Reef in Australia is now completely dead due to human activities.

As a responsible group of volunteers who dedicate their precious time towards the betterment of the society, the Leos and prospects of Leo club of University of Moratuwa has kept a giant pace, a beach cleaning program known as Green Waves with the aim of protecting coastal region, on 31 st March 2019. The target area was the coastal area from Rathmalana to Angulana.

Green Waves was not only a program to clean the coastal area, it also enhanced the commitment and the unity among the Leos and prospects of the Club. As many members of the club participated in the Leap project at Anuradhapura, the rest shared the responsibility of achieving the purpose of Green Waves indicating the leadership qualities through example.

All the plastic wastages, polyethene and garbage that were disposed to the coast were carefully collected and disposed properly. There, the members participated in the project worked with the utmost ambition of enhancing the quality of our coasts. Finally, the project concluded with a great success, inheriting a clean and tidy coast to the nature again.
