Volunteers fight it on the beaches – Seaside rubbish

Beachwatch volunteers come up fitter! Thousands of Beachwatch volunteers can tell you how much fun a beach clean and survey is – and how rewarding! Why not get involved?

The Marine Conservation Society champions the need for marine wildlife protection, sustainable fisheries and clean seas and beaches. http://www.mcsuk.org/

Volunteers Required

To volunteer at an MCS beach clean, all you need to do is find an event and sign up to attend!

Beachwatch is our 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!

With cleans throughout the year, there are loads of opportunities for you to look after your beach. Our flagship national event is the Great British Beach Clean on the third weekend of September (so the next one is 14th-17th September 2018). There are plenty of smaller events being held before then though so get involved.
