As a charity MCS relies on your generous support
We've got over 900 passionate organisers all around the UK, and we'd love you to join them!
Organising a Beachwatch beach clean is easy and we've got loads of resources to help you.
Start by reading our step-by-step guide and find out what it's all about.
Then, have a look at our beach map to find your nearest beach - if it's not there, we can add it on. Some beaches already have organisers - if that's the case don't despair! Drop us a line and we can look for one nearby that's in need of some love.
And finally, register so that you can sign up to your beach, start planning your events and access loads of information and resources.
Don't forget, we're here to help! If you have ANY questions just give us a ring: 01989 566017, or contact us via our online form.
Why Beachwatch Organisers are fantastic!
They're the people who make the surveys happen. Without them, our beaches would be dirtier and less loved, and our wildlife would be more at risk of entanglement.
Most importantly, we wouldn't have any data on the litter around our coastline. On every Beachwatch beach clean, our volunteers record the litter they collect and send the data to us. This gives us information about trends, sources and where to focus our campaigns to stop litter from getting to the beach in the first place.
More than just a beach clean
How do we stop litter from reaching our beaches?
Well, we can talk to water companies when we see lots of Sewage Related Debris being recorded. We can prove to decision makers and leaders that our seas are in trouble by showing them over 20 years of litter data. We can talk to companies whose logos keep showing up on beach litter and we can work with manufacturers to find solutions.
But we can't do any of this if we don't have the data to back it up.
