Would you be willing to volunteer to help clean up your local or favourite beach? Beachwatch is the Marine Conservation Society's national beach cleaning and litter surveying programme - helping people all around the UK to care for their coastline. Some of our best-loved marine wildlife is under threat from the waste and litter in our seas, with hundreds of species accidentally eating or becoming entangled in litter. It's also dangerous for people and damaging to our tourism and fishing industries. We all have a part to play in turning the tide on litter. Join an event or organise your own and be part of the most influential fight against marine litter in the UK!
You can take part in events in Aberdour, Blacksands Beach; Leuchars, Tentsmuir Point National Nature Reserve; St Andrews and Maidens Rock Beach all on 16 September and Kinghorn Harbour on 17 September. For more details and to register to attend, please visit their website and if you'd like to organise your own event, the home page on that website will give you help and information. The site also lists events on other dates and places.
