What do I need to bring to an event?

We provide any equipment necessary so volunteers only need to dress for the weather and bring their enthusiasm, protective gloves if they have them and a packed lunch if attending a beach clean.

What is the Tideline Treasure Hunt?

During the Tideline Treasure Hunt section of certain beach cleans, we'll be searching for and identifying different egg cases, shells, seaweeds etc. along the tideline so people can learn about the kind of creatures they're helping us to protect.

The number of specific shark/skate/ray eggcases that we identify during the Tideline Treasure Hunt will also be added to the Shark Trust's Great Eggcase Hunt project so you'll also be helping to gain a better understanding of species abundance, distribution and how to protect them.

Going through the  tideline also has the added benefit of allowing us to remove small particles of plastic found in this area which are often consumed by wildlife as  the tideline is a particularly common foraging area for seabirds and other wildlife.

What are the benefits of helping at an event?

You will have the chance to directly help to protect and conserve our native aquatic creatures. These events are a great family day activity and a wonderful way to help children develop their understanding of local habitats and the importance of protecting our natural resources.
