Residents in Vancouver and Toronto got a surprise today: aquatic animal sculptures made of litter at two of the cities’ most popular coastal beaches: English Bay Beach in Vancouver and Ashbridge’s Bay in Toronto.

The sculptures are made of garbage commonly found on Canadian coastlines and beaches and are part of an effort by the Vancouver Aquarium and WWF-Canada to increase awareness about the need to clean up our shorelines during the annual Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup.

Started by the Vancouver Aquarium, the Cleanup is designed to achieve real, measurable impact on the environment and help Canadians feel like true “environmental citizens”.

You can see English Bay Beach’s huge, life-like seals (pictured above) today, August 26, from 8am – 7pm.

You can join the effort to clean up coastal Vancouver by volunteering for the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup happening September 18 – 26, 2010. Sign up online here.
