The Clean Ocean Project is a non-governmental organization based on Fuerteventura. It was founded in 2000 to protect the oceans, waves and beaches. Our approach is simple, we are driven by the idea that everybody is part of the problem - and the solution. Do your bit, be part of it.
Wim Geirnaert came to Fuerteventura in 1993. The northshore with it’s beautiful scenery formed out of volcanic rocks became his playground. Somehow the rough coastline looks indestructible but it isn’t. It’s a fragile ecosystem. The beaches were dirty, something had to be done. He invited his the friends and together they they cleaned the beach in Cotillo. The Clean Ocean Project was born.
