Swanage Beach Buddies Update 3rd September 2019

Beach Litter Haul 3rd September 2019

Here’s what our lovely team of volunteers micro-cleaned on Tues 3rd Sept. from South and Central beaches. This weighed 4.25 kgs and included countless items of plastic that would otherwise breakdown and become a risk to marine life if eaten through choking or poisoning. Other items could strangle and injure marine life; some leak poisons on to the beach when wet; some of it you wouldn’t want to tread on. Can you identify what’s what and what possible hazards they pose? Can you guess how many cigarette stubs there are? Many of them came from the tideline so we were bagging them after they’d ricocheted back to us on the tide!
