It’s that time of year again, when winter storms lash our coast and bring with them that sad reminder of the vast quantity of plastic pollution present in our oceans. It’s a truly global problem which can often seem insurmountable, but getting out there and helping to keep your local beach clean can make a huge difference to the wildlife that calls it home.

Our ‘Plast Off’ beach clean events are fast becoming legendary! It’s a great, sociable way to do your bit to help local wildlife – and it’s suitable for all ages so the whole family can get involved!

Come along and join the #LivingSeas Team from The North Wales Wildlife Trust at Aberffraw on Friday the 21st of February, anytime from 11:00 until 15:00. We will have staff on hand in the car park by the bridge (Pont Aberffraw) to brief and equip all members of the public who want to join in.

In an exciting new development, our friends at The Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales are planning to hold their very own ‘Plast Off!’ events at the same time as us in different locations in Mid and South Wales, meaning that we’ll be part of a bigger effort than ever before! ‘Plast Off 2020’ will be taking place across Wales on Friday 21st February, at the following locations:

  • North Wales – between 11:00 and 15:00 at Aberffraw.
  • West Wales – between 11:00 and 15:00 at Llanrhystud North (Pengarreg Caravan Park).
  • South Wales – between 10:00 and 13:00 at Overton Mere.

All you need to bring is a ‘can-do’ attitude and plenty of warm waterproof clothing – we’ll provide the rest!

We hope to see you there!
