Mulberry Marine Experiences September Beach Clean
September 19, Sunday
15:30 - 18:30
The Lifeboat Station, East Beach, Selsey
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. We are passionate about caring for our seas and the Selsey Bill and Hounds Marine Conservation Zone but need your help to do so.
We have held annual underwater cleans in the past but as part of our Blue Oceans mission are now introducing regular bi-monthly cleans along the shore and under the water. Our 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 we can find.
We 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 we would love to have you join us.
Each event will be run by Mulberry staff and finds recorded and weighed. We will start by cleaning the same section extending from Selsey, Lifeboat Station. With your help we want to increase the area that we are covering. You will be provided with hoops, pickers and cutters but if you have your own please bring along.
If you are unable to attend but would like to support our efforts please consider becoming a Mulberry Me+ member. We use a proportion of your membership fee to fund our ecology efforts whilst offering you a host of benefits. If you would prefer to make a direct donation please just ask.
