Avian Flu-With the outbreak of Avian flu across the UK, the Marine Conservation Society  want to remind volunteers that when you're out and about, please don't touch any sick or dead birds. If you find an injured or sick animal call the RSPCA- 0300 1234999

What to bring: We’d recommend you pack a rucksack with a few essentials like sunscreen, waterproofs, hand sanitiser, and perhaps some snacks and a drink (in a reusable bottle, of course).

What to wear: If you're picking up litter with your hands it's worth wearing a strong pair of gloves - like gardening gloves - just to make sure you're protected. Sturdy shoes are a must for protection too.

Under 16s: While the event is for adults to work in pairs at past events some families have attended. To comply with our insurance, volunteers under 16 will need to be accompanied by an adult who will be asked to sign a parental / guardian consent form on the day by the beach clean organiser.
