After the success of last year’s Day, the YSBR team has decided to do it again this Valentine’s Day only BIGGER!
Jenn Sandiford, the Trust’s Your Shore Beach Rangers Youth Engagement Officer, says,
“It’s so hugely important to continue this momentum when it comes to plastic pollution! We all need to continue to support, raise awareness and take part in beach cleans across the county. It’s really easy to feel disheartened when it comes to issues in conservation, but this day shows that with an idea and the right people, we can all have a massive impact!
Carolyn Cadman, Chief Executive of Cornwall Wildlife Trust, joined in last year’s Love Your Beach Day and says “Taking part in a beach clean and removing litter makes a real difference to wildlife living in and around the coasts of Cornwall. Everyone is welcome and we will be encouraging people who join us to talk to others and to use social media to show friends, families and local politicians why it’s important to take action for wildlife.”
The volunteers will be joining forces on Valentine’s Day including those from Holywell Surf Lifesaving Club, Plastic Free Perranporth, Beach Guardian and BIFFA Cornwall. The Your Shore Network groups involved so far are Friends of Fowey, Three Bays Wildlife Group, Looe Marine Conservation Group, St Agnes Marine Conservation Group, Falmouth Marine Conservation Group, Newquay Marine Group, Mount’s Bay Marine Group and Polzeath Marine Conservation Group.
