I joined my kayak club for a beach clean today. The club has done this for a number of years at the same location and it is pleasing to report a reduction in the volume of litter collected.
Thanks for Rob for organising this again and to the team including a local fishing boat that turned out to work (and drink tea).
Marine litter is a problem. We picked up lots of small pieces of plastic which can be injested by animals. See Adopt a Beach
for more information
