A beach is a unique environment with specific challenges
and risks so if you're thinking of doing a tidy up on the
coastline then the first thing to do is to get in touch with an
organisation that specialises in tidying up beaches.
The Marine Conservation
Society (MCS) does some fantastic work in this area and
their coastal environmental initiative, MCS Beachwatch, brings
together local individuals, groups and communities in caring
for their coastal environment.
Stemming the rising tide
of beach rubbish is what the MCS's forthcoming Beachwatch Big
Weekend on 17-18 September is all about so
registering on their site is a great first place to start.
You'll be able to find out about activities going on in your area
and you'll also get the low down on how to carry out beach tidy ups
safely and effectively.
