Surfers Against Sewage (SAS) is “an environmental charity protecting the UK’s oceans, waves and beaches for all to enjoy safely and sustainably via community action, campaigning, volunteering, conservation, education and scientific research.”
From 17-19 October, this organisation is asking for your help. If you live near a beach or use a beach, you can get involved in their Autumn Beach Clean during 17-19 October. You can organise a community event or sign up to one which is happening near you. Schools are joining in all over the UK. The SAS have an education officer and have worked hard on putting together interesting and innovative programmes that link to the curriculum.
The littering of our seas and oceans is a huge global issue and keeping the matter in the public eye through positive community action can make a big difference. There will be a particular focus this year on recording the collections of netting and other ghost fishing gear.
