We all like to give a little back sometimes, and community service is one great way to help out a local population, visitors to the area, and the fauna and flora that surrounds a geographic region. Delta Safaris Kayak Cleanup combines the best tenets of voluntourism, with a leisurely paddle and a little bit of exercise, as we help clean up some of our region’s most trash affected waterways.
This is not a tour for the germ-o-phobe, as we will endeavor to trek deep into parts of our region that are in desperate need of support, to alleviate the stress placed on the water systems before they can no longer sustain life. That being said, our Hero’s will be safely tucked away in their kayaks or canoes, armed with rubber gloves and trash bags and hopefully returning having “left a trace!” To these brave souls – Delta Safaris salutes you!
Of course, along the way we’ll see some great wildlife and chat about them too, as well as experiencing first hand how mishandled trash can drastically affect our natural surroundings. Perfect for tourists simply wanting to help out, college course volunteer requirements, corporate departments, and other organizations or groups who are looking to do just a little good for a few hours. It’s a great and enjoyable way to help clean up our environment.
