Did you know...
...that an estimated 26 million tons of plastic pollution ends up in the oceans each year where it chokes, entangles and poisons marine life, and that it kills millions of marine creatures each year?
Plastic bags, disposable cutlery, old phone covers, drink bottles, batteries… you name it, we’ve found it! And unfortunately it all poses a big threat to our marine creatures, whether it stays in our rivers or gets washed into the ocean.
How do I join a beach clean?
Join in with your local SEA LIFE or Merlin attraction beach cleans.
Who can get involved?
Everyone of all ages are welcome! From individuals looking to make a difference; to families, youth groups, student groups and local community groups, everyone is welcome to join us in helping to protect our native wildlife!
What do I need to bring?
We provide any equipment necessary so volunteers only need to dress for the weather and bring their enthusiasm, protective gloves if they have them and a packed lunch if attending a beach clean.
What are the benefits of helping out?
You will have the chance to directly help to protect and conserve our native aquatic creatures. These events are a great family day activity and a wonderful way to help children develop their understanding of local habitats and the importance of protecting our natural resources.
