70 years of helping people to care for our ocean
In partnership with KZN Beach Cleanup we hosted our first beach clean-up of the year on 11th February 2023.
Guided by members of SAAMBR’s education staff, over 200 passionate conservation volunteers each spent an average of 2 hours collecting litter on the uShaka Beach. The combined weight of the 51 bags collected in this short period was 298 kg.
The most commonly found items were cigarette butts, broken plastic nurdles, bottle caps and polystyrene.
Every time we come together as a community to clean our shared beach space, we are removing potential threats to marine life.
It was wonderful to see so many high school students join in on the fun and tackle data collection with passion! Thank you to everyone who picked up, counted and helped clean the beach.
See you at the next clean up!
