Every piece of plastic that has ever been created is still present in our environment, and at least 80% of this ends up in our oceans. This has a huge impact on our local wildlife, with hundreds of species of marine mammals, fish and seabirds reportedly mistaking it for food.

Join us for a festive beach clean at Torre Abbey Sands in Torquay

Meet on the beach (look for the Wild Planet Trust Flag!) at 3pm on 19th December.


This is a free event but booking is essential.


All kit will be provided by Wild Planet Trust but please dress appropriately for the weather.


If we do need to cancel due to poor weather conditions, we will email you – please keep an eye out!
