On the 30th September 2016 SEA LIFE Hunstanton teamed up with Hunstanton Primary School to clean litter around Old Hunstanton Beach. In total the team collected over 15kg of litter, a fantastic effort by the team and the children from our local school.
Diane Mapplebeck said "We had a fantastic time and the children are really proud that they were able to help. The SEA LIFE centre staff were brilliant, great with the children and very informative. Our newly formed ECO team is brimming with ideas about how we can improve our school, school grounds and local environment for both the wildlife and local community".
SEA LIFE Hunstanton will be organising several beach cleans throughout 2019. Dates will be announced in the new year.
To find out more and to register, please visit our SEA LIFE Hunstanton Facebook page and select 'Events' to sign up and help with a local beach clean.
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!
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.
You will have directly helped to protect our native aquatic creatures but as thanks, we provide all our volunteers with a free day entry ticket to our Sea Life centre!
