Mulberry Marine Beach Clean February 2024
February 17, Saturday
10:00 - 12:30
It is sadly inevitable that a large percentage of the rubbish we produce ends up in our seas. Carried by winds and currents it can travel far from the starting location. Mulberry Marine Experiences are passionate about caring for our seas and the Selsey Bill and Hounds Marine Conservation Zone but they need your help to do so.
Mulberry Marine Experiences have held annual underwater cleans in the past but as part of their Blue Oceans mission are now introducing regular cleans along the shore and under the water. Their aim is to remove and record the rubbish like micro-plastics, discarded litter, tangled monofilament fishing line, and weights; to name just a portion of what you can find.
They need volunteers to help on the shore, on the water and underwater. If you are a walker, wader, snorkeller or diver and can spare a couple of hours they would love to have you join us.
Each event will be run by Mulberry staff and finds recorded and weighed. With your help they want to increase the area that they are covering. You will be provided with hoops, pickers and cutters but if you have your own please take along.
If you are unable to attend but would like to support their efforts please consider becoming a Mulberry Me+ member. Mulberry marine Experiences use a proportion of your membership fee to fund thei ecology efforts whilst offering a host of benefits.
