SEA LIFE Trust Global Beach Clean

Our famous 24 hour Global Beach Clean took place on World Oceans Day (8th June 2022)!

A huge thank you to all of our participants, wherever they may be, who took part - we'll see you again in 2023!

What happened at SEA LIFE Trust Global Beach Clean 2022...

With more than 40 events organised from New Zealand to the USA (and everywhere in between) SEA LIFE Trust saw hundreds of volunteers and SEA LIFE staff out in force along beaches, canals and rivers with collection bags, gloves, litter pickers and tons of enthusiasm.

Now, we're logging the results of each event, to record the weight of each haul and types of rubbish our fellow cleaners found on the big day.

A huge thank you to everyone who took part around the world - we couldn't do it without you!

Watch this space for a summary of this global event (due out this week).
