Spring Cleaning

Over the past few months my good friend Trevor has been busy getting involved with the Marine Conservation Society and their Beachwatch scheme.

Trevor has chosen a stretch of beach on the Lleyn Peninsula. With some voluntary help from friends old and new, he hopes to conduct regular surveys and organise clean up events.

Today we conducted a detailed survey into the beach litter along a designated 100 metre stretch of Porth y Nant beach at the foot of Nant Gwrtheyrn.

Whilst the survey litter was being sorted and listed, the rest of us continued to clear plastic debris from a one kilometre stretch of beach.

It is really quite satisfying to see the visual difference that we have made. It was exhausting carrying the 32 bags of rubbish up the hill but we'll be back!
