Marine Litter Awareness Day

Monday 30 July 2018 11:00 - 16:00

Celebrate National Marine Week! Marine litter is a growing problem and affects all marine wildlife from microscopic plankton to the largest whales. Come along and learn more about the issues associated with marine litter, where it comes from and discover ways in which we can all help. At 2pm we'll head out onto the beach for a nurdle hunt and carry out a microplastic beach clean at Kimmeridge. If you're wondering what a nurdle is... come along and find out!

Meet at the Fine Foundation Wild Seas Centre, located by the slipway in Kimmeridge Bay. Postcode: BH20 5PE. Please be aware that access to Kimmeridge Bay is via a private road for which a toll of £5 per car is charged by Smedmore Estate (charges vary for other types of vehicle). Park in the main car park and follow the footpath to the east side of the bay. This is a free event and all are welcome to drop in to view the displays and chat with wardens throughout the day. If you are joining us for the nurdle hunt and beach clean you will need to arrive at the centre promptly for a 2pm start. For health & safety reasons we cannot accept late-comers. This event includes walking over uneven and sometimes slippery rocks therefore sturdy shoes or wellingtons are essential. The nurdle hunt is weather dependent - phone the Marine Centre on 01929 481044 if unsure.
