YORKSHIRE WILDLIFE TRUST
GREAT BRITISH BEACH CLEAN
Volunteers joined Yorkshire Wildlife Trust this weekend as they took part in the Great British Beach Clean.
Yorkshire Wildlife Trust along with volunteers from across Yorkshire collected over 555 individual pieces of litter at South Landing Flamborough as part of the Marine Conservation Society’s Great British Beach Clean.
Vicky Pawson, Living Seas Centre Trainee said: “We take every precaution when carrying out beach cleans as you never know what you might find. This year some of the items included a kitchen knife with a blade measuring 4.5 inches, fragments of broken glass and life-like fishing lures with hooks intact. We would urge everyone to dispose of their waste responsibly and recycle as much as they can.”
“The beach at South Landing is now a cleaner and safer place for all to enjoy and the waste collected will not be returning to the sea; therefore protecting our marine wildlife. Our heartfelt thanks goes out to all the wonderful volunteers who came and helped this weekend. Anyone who is interested in organising regular beach cleans to help us monitor litter on Yorkshire’s coastline can get involved with our Waves of Waste project by contacting us on 01262 422103.”
Young marine conservationist Isabella Coy (6) from Beverley has also received her Blue Peter environmental badge for her project about a recent beach clean organised by the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust at Flamborough Head.
Isabella, who has always been a keen conservationist, had created a list of environmental projects she would like to complete by the time she is ten. Having sorted out recycling at home, created a bug hotel and a compost heap, she was determined to take part in a beach clean. Having already visited the Living Seas Centre at Flamborough, and taken part in some of the educational opportunities the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust has to offer, it only seemed natural to give back to the centre by taking part in one of their organised cleans.
Of the day, Bella says “It was really fun but I also learnt a lot about the litter on the beach. I liked getting to spend time on the beach and helping the animals.”
