Every year, millions of tons of litter end up in the ocean with a direct and deadly effect on wildlife from seabirds to whales, fish to invertebrates. Marine pollution starts on land and is one of the main drivers of the depletion of marine biodiversity. This is why since 2017 the EU has organised the annual #EUBeachCleanup campaign.
Team up with the European Commission Representation in Ireland and Clean Coasts in a beach clean-up action for 2 hours in Bull Island starting at 11.00 am on Saturday 16 October.
#EUBeachCleanup campaign - from a drop in the ocean to a wave of change
Places are limited and you have to register via Eventbrite. All kit will be provided. You will be notified of the meeting point of the clean-up in the lead up to the event.
Any questions, please contact Richard on firstname.lastname@example.org.
