Help clean up and be part of global movement turning the tide on marine litter

The event takes place on Sunday 2nd June 2019 , starting at 9am , and it promises to be a fun and informative social occasion.

The Beach Clean will take place at Warsash and we will meet at the pink flag on Warsash Strawberry Fields for a briefing.

The tide of litter washing up on our shores is not just unpleasant to look at, it can harm and even kill some of our best-loved marine wildlife. Over 170 species including seabirds, turtles and whales have mistaken marine litter for food and actually eaten it, which in many cases has resulted in starvation, poisoning and ultimately a slow, painful death. Plastic packaging and discarded fishing nets also injure, entangle and drown some of Britain’s favourite marine animals, including seals and dolphins.” MCS surveys have recorded a steady increase in the amount of beach litter since 1994. The four main sources of litter found on UK beaches come from the public, fishing, sanitary waste (particularly cotton bud sticks) and shipping. We want people to come down to on Sunday 2nd June and take part in an event that will not only make the beach look great for visitors, but will also help MCS identify where the litter comes and try to stop it at source.
