From Sunrise to Sunset - The SEA LIFE Trust launches first ever 24-Hour Global Beach Clean Event - and you can join in!
This World Oceans Day (8th June 2019), global marine conservation charity, the SEA LIFE Trust will launch its biggest clean-up mission yet. A 24-hour beach clean event starting in New Zealand and ending in California. The event will be hosted across 50 different SEA LIFE attractions taking place from Sydney to Scarborough.
It is estimated that 8 million tons of plastic waste enter the world's oceans each year and that by 2050, the oceans could have more plastic than fish. So we need volunteers to join us and help make a difference this World Oceans Day at a beach clean in Weymouth on Saturday 8 June!
The 24 hours of beach cleaning will be captured in photos with camera partner Olympus who are asking volunteers to take pictures and post their best ‘clean-up’ pictures on social media using hashtag #24HourGlobalBeachClean. These pictures will be used as a great reference point for what waste is found where and with the added benefit that each post using the hashtag will be entered into a competition to win a brand new Olympus Tough T5 camera!
If you and your family would like to join the cause, please meet us at Weymouth SEA LIFE at 9am and we'll walk along the beach towards Bowleaze Cove. Help us to reduce the amount of litter plaguing our beautiful shoreline and see if you can find any treasures along the way!
A supply of bin bags and litter pickers will be available, but please bring your own gardening gloves if you can to protect your hands.
Let's make a difference together!
