Tamar UK CSR Update – Tuesday

Alex Christie

10 June 2008

Litter_2 I am writing this blog from a beach in Cornwall – Whitsand beach to be precise! Most of the Tamar UK office have come down here for a week of environmental volunteering. Yesterday was spent getting the troops down and exploring the seaside town of Looe.

Today we have done a litter pick with the guys  from BTCV www.btcv.org.UK  along the beach extracting an incredible amount of rubbish from what had originally looked like quite a clean beach. Most was  plastic and chip packets which  apart from being ugly cause problems to the local wildlife including the leatherback turtles and the dolphins and whales that cruise the Cornish coast.The weather is fabulous and the beach is now clean. Tomorrow we’ll be up to something else so watch this space for an update.

In the photo above, Sarah is recording the rubbish we find, to be fed into the Marine Conservation society’s database which keeps track of the type and volume of rubbish washed up on British beaches.
