Lizzie has always loved the sea but this love grew further when learning to dive during her time at University of Plymouth. She volunteered in the Philippines for a marine conservation organisation called Zoox and was lucky enough to work with the local community on the issues surrounding the marine environment. This led to her first ever beach clean and ignited her passion to do this for a living. Lizzie volunteered with MCS as a Sea Champion until securing a job with the Beachwatch programme. She now works with our amazing volunteers around the UK who lead beach clean and litter surveys. She now supports the Waitrose Beach and River Clean-up, increasing engagement through partners and volunteers getting involved.
