Cleans Coast Photo exhibition at SEA LIFE Bray 9th - 18th January
An Taisce s Clean Coasts program and SEA LIFE Bray have been working closely together in the past 4 months to tackle marine litter in the surrounding area. SEA LIFE sits directly on the Sea front of Bray Beach which is a hugely busy beach for dog walkers, water sports and general beach goers.
Marine litter can be hugely dangerous to both humans and animals alike. Therefore this year we became a Coast Care group as part of An Taisce s Clean Coasts program. At every possible opportunity SEA LIFE Bray and volunteers head out on to Bray Beach to remove any litter from the beach while teaching volunteers about Marine creatures and the problems they face.
An Taisce has been relentless in their support and have given us the opportunity to exhibit the winners of their annual photo competition to raise awareness regarding marine litter and SEA LIFE Coast care group. The exhibition will be shown in SEA LIFE Bray from *9th January – 18th January. *
