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.
Take part in SEA LIFE Manchester's Canal Clean
Unfortunately plastic and rubbish find their way into our oceans and it all poses a big threat to our marine creatures, whether it stays in our rivers or gets washed into the sea. Our local canals in the area see tons of litter (and larger items!) dumped there every year. SEA LIFE Manchester conduct canal cleans every month and we need your help!
Join us and you will get yourself FREE entry into SEA LIFE Manchester and you'll feel great too!

Help us with the Turtle Tally!
We’re helping Turtle Tally UK to keep track of sightings of terrapins and turtles in our waterways.
Whilst you clean the canals we are asking volunteers to keep their eye out for these creatures and note any sightings.
