This is the rescheduled date for the beach clean cancelled in January. All other details the same.The Dolphinwatch team are holding their first beach clean of the new year.

Start of the New Year by giving back to your local community and helping to protect the local wildlife by joining us for what we hope will be our biggest beach clean of the year. Last year, with the support of Surfers Against Sewage, we had an amazing 150 people support the clean, collecting over 90 bags of litter, can we beat that this year?

We will be meeting on the lower deck of the esplanade opposite the beach ballroom on Saturday 1 February 2020. We will meet at 10am for a short safety brief and hand out equipment with the aim to start the clean at 10:30 and meet back at 12:00 to sort the litter and take a group photo of our efforts.

All equipment will be provided, including gloves, little picks and bags, but please bring any additional bags or gloves if you are able. Everyone is welcome to join us as we will be trying to spread out as far along Aberdeen Beach as we can to collect as much litter as possible. Every piece of litter we collect helps protect wildlife and allows us to enjoy spending time on beaches that are clean and safe.
