The children were really enthusiastic to find out all about marine litter today in a workshop from ‘ Blue Marine Foundation’.
As promoted by Sir David Attenborough on BBC Blue Planet, the children found out about the problem marine litter is causing in our waters and on a global scale. They discovered the types of litter found on our local beaches and how it effects the marine environment. The children were surprised to find out how some of it got into the sea and they thought about what they could do to help this global crisis. Watch this space!
The workshop was delivered by a local fisherman and his knowledge of the local area and his description of the real-life problems he encounters on a daily basis brought the issue to life.
