The Great British Beach Clean

Friday 17th – Sunday 26th September is Great British Beach Clean week.

The Great British Beach Clean is a week-long citizen science event, where hundreds of beach cleans take place up and down the UK. Litter data collected drives our conservation work and also feeds into the International Coastal Clean-up (ICC).

Did you know that 30% of beach cleans last year found face masks and PPE?
