Lend a helping hand to clean the beach at Spurn National Nature Reserve

Litter harms wildlife and with over 20 000 tons of marine litter being dumped in the North Sea each year it is vital we do as much as we can to remove it once it reaches our beaches.

Join volunteers and staff from Yorkshire Wildlife Trust on the 4th March from 10am – 3pm to clean the beach at Spurn National Nature Reserve.

Adam Stoyle, Spurn Gateway Development Officer said: “Beach cleans are always good fun and often throw up a few surprises such as litter dating back to the early 80s. We will likely see wading birds feeding on the estuary side of the reserve and seals on the seaward side. Make sure you wear warm clothing and suitable footwear. If you have protective gloves please do bring them as well as a drink and packed lunch.”
