Become a Beachwatch Organiser



The Covid-19 (coronavirus) infection has been declared a public health emergency of international concern by the World Health Organisation.
The health and wellbeing of our volunteers and supporters is our utmost priority and as such we have taken the decision to advise that all  beach clean events should be cancelled pending further notice.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely and will contact organisers and volunteers by email as well as update the guidance on our website as the situation develops.

Who are Beachwatch Organisers?

The people who make our events happen. Without them, our beaches would be dirtier and our wildlife would be more at risk of entanglement.

They run our surveys at every Beachwatch beach clean, our volunteers record the litter they collect and send the information to us. MCS staff then look at trends, sources of litter and where to focus our campaigns to stop rubbish from getting to the beach in the first place.
