For this litter survey and clean as part of The Great British Beach Clean, we are joining forces with Polzeath Beach Care and Polzeath Marine Conservation Group who are holding a MEGA beach clean on the main beach. A group of us will survey Pentire Haven (Baby Bay) for beach litter and record all of it in a fixed area using MCS survey methodology. All data gathered today will go towards the Global Trash Index collated by Ocean Conservancy in the USA from cleans occurring in 120+ countries on this day. Please wear flat and waterproof shoes (no flip flops) and suitable clothing (its windy on the beach). Please meet at the marine centre for 3pm for a briefing - map is available on Polzeath Marine group Facebook page. Refreshments provided afterwards for all beach cleaners. Bring any medication that you need with you, Gloves provided. Its is quite a long walk from Polzeath main beach to Pentire Haven so be prepared! Contact jules.agate@mcsuk.org or see the Polzeath Marine Group Facebookpage for more info as I will be out all weekend beach cleaning!
