Beach Cleans 2019

BEACH CLEAN AT GREAT YARMOUTH SEA LIFE

Sea Life Great Yarmouth pledged to commit to at least one beach or river clean per month throughout 2019. Hundreds of members of the public gave up their time to volunteer for our beach cleans and the two river cleans were in partnership with the Broads Authority.  A big thank you to the rangers of the Broads Authority for making the river events happen.  We all helped to clear hundreds of kilograms of rubbish from Breydon Water and the North beach of Great Yarmouth.  Collecting old fishing equipment, rope, and bottles, shopping trolleys, a motorbike as well as other items of debris on our beach, which prevented it from ending up in the sea where it can become a serious hazard for marine life!

For 2019 –

Beach cleans carried out: 10

River Cleans: 2

Total number of volunteers over the 12 cleans: Over 400

Total weight of rubbish removed: 1016.12 kg (2240.16 lbs)

To give you some idea of how much that is, a fully grown black rhino weighs 1,100 kg (2425.085lbs) so that’s a lot of rubbish!

Although we won’t be doing monthly beach cleans next year, we will continue to hold some. If you would like to join our beach clean email list or would like to ask a question, please contact us on 01493 330631 or email Gt.YarmouthSeaLifeCentre@merlinentertainments.biz
