Sea Torbay are bringing together local groups for an Extreme Beach Clean event on Sunday 20th September as part of the Marine Conservation Society’s Great British Beach Clean.
Marine litter is a continuing problem, not only locally but also globally and the impact it has on the marine environment is huge as well as unsightly. Sea Torbay are asking the local community to help keep coasts and seas clean by joining the Extreme Beach Clean. For the more adventurous, there will be kayaking, Coasteering and diving activities to clear up harder to reach areas, as well as litter picking across the Bay. The event will finish at Beacon Cove with a celebration.
Clare Rugg, Chair of Sea Torbay, said: “This is the first event the partnership has run and we wanted to find a way to involve the local community in the work the Sea Torbay does, and this year the partnership has been focusing on marine litter, so we thought an extreme beach clean would be an exciting and engaging way for people to get involved’
